The Whole Team

After WordCamp the whole team had an “onsite” at Stinson Beach in Northern California. With people from Australia to Louisiana to Bulgaria, it’s a pretty big deal for us to be all in one place.

We’ve be planning out the year, deciding what to focus on. Tough work, but it’s been tempered by lots of beer, wine, Bulgarian vodka, hikes, bikes, and sea boarding.

We had met in La Paz earlier in the year but the whole team wasn’t able to make it. This time we’re all here! Don’t worry, we’re watching out for meteors. If you ever wondered what the crazy team behind all this looks like, here we are:

Automattic Team

From left to right: Matt T., Nikolay, Maya, Raanan, Demetrious, Andy, Joseph, Toni, Ryan, Lloyd, Barry, Donncha, Matt M., Mark, Alex, and Mike.

    Again with the EUROPE PLEASE! shouts. I’d be more likely to make Bulgaria than SF, and would definitely make the effort if it was nearer.

    I think blogging is an innovative and brand new way of sharing ideas for the good of mankind. It is indeed a welcome idea that LBS is eposing students to the potentials of blogging. It will add value to the lives of users.
