Last week, Robert Scoble, John Borthwick, and Steve Gillmor discuss Calypso on an episode of the Gillmor Gang with the CEO of Automatic and co-creator of WordPress, Matt Mullenweg. The video was taken last Tuesday, November 24. Mullenweg provides a hands-on tour of the new reader, notifications, editor, and explains WordPress.com’s new architecture. He further explains how the desktop client and browser version were developed simultaneously. He also discuss that in some ways WordPress and Medium compete with every place that people publish online (Twitter or Facebook), but in day to day, that competition doesn’t really drive product decisions. Mullenweg elaborates on the differences between WordPress.com and Medium’s user base.
