USAToday Article on Matt Mullenweg

By Deane Barker on January 28, 2009

WordPress creator Mullenweg is many bloggers’ best friend: Apparently wordpress.com is taking 10,000 signups a day.

WordPress has become so entrenched on the Web that many of the biggest names use it now — a roster that includes CNN, Fox News and The New York Times, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Coca-Cola and General Electric, along with millions of ordinary bloggers.

“People might start with LiveJournal or Blogger, but if they get serious, they’ll graduate to WordPress. We try to cater to the more powerful users,” says Mullenweg, 25.
