Thank you for your vote

Thanks in large part to your support, Automattic and WordPress won both of the prizes it was nominated for, WordPress winning Most Likely to Succeed and Toni Schneider of Automattic winning Best CEO. Woot!

Like I said from stage, to us the awards aren’t an accomplishment, they’re a challenge. You believe in us, and it’s our responsibility to live up to the honor you voted us into. Thank you for your support, everyone.

The event was a lot of fun too, like an Oscars but for geeks, some of whom accepted their awards in hoodies and jeans. I also think only at geek awards do you not have to worry about speeches going on too long. :)

    Congratulations! You earned it and we Thank You!

    Congrads dude…. y’all earned it. I loved WordPress when I had my domain. I believe my drupal was the cause of my hack. Lesson Learned. Free hosting always has it’s risks.

    Now change that silly avatar, Matt, Christmas has been over for, what now? 26 days?!!

    A hearty congratulations from Germany!

    You all deserve it, awesome work!

    Ich blogge auf deutsch mit WordPress. I blog in German.

    (and no, I do not think you are geeks!)

  15. Chittaranjan

    Yay! Congratulations……

  16. raincoaster

    I certainly figured you were a shoe-in for Most Likely to Succeed. I mean, when your competitors are recommending to their staff that they use WordPress for their blogs (and they are, I heard them!), you gotta know you set the standard in the field.

    But Matt, who designed your outfit?


    Be happy Matt,
    No problem ;)
