With 60 Million Websites, WordPress Rules The Web. So Where’s The Money?

This story appears in the September 24, 2012 issue of Forbes.

Matt Mullenweg was a 19-year-old freshman at the University of Houston when he clicked “publish” on a new blog post. His personal website, Photomatt.net, was growing, he explained, but he needed a better publishing tool to replace the neglected, open-source software called b2 that he preferred. “It would be nice to have the flexibility of Movable Type, the parsing of TextPattern, the hackability of b2 and the-ease-of-setup of Blogger,” he mused, citing the popular blogging services of the day. “Someday, right?”

That hit-the-button moment on Jan. 24, 2003 can’t quite compare with Cyrus Field’s first transatlantic telegraphic message or the flick of George Westinghouse’s electric switch at the World’s Columbian Exposition. But Mullenweg made his own history. He immediately set out to create WordPress, the online publishing software that is now the Web’s lingua franca–the world’s leading blogging platform and the crown jewel of Automattic, the San Francisco outfit Mullenweg runs with CEO Toni Schneider, a veteran developer, entrepreneur and venture capitalist.
