Automattic WordPress

Blogging in Arizona

Most of the Automattic team are in the wilds of Arizona this week. Looking out the window I see an environment as alien to the green Irish landscape I’m familiar with as I’ll probably ever see. Cactus grows everywhere, dark green bushes cover the hills and the dirt on the ground is bone dry. The sun beats down out of a clear blue sky. It’s warm outside, but so cold in the shade. It’s still winter after all, even if it doesn’t feel like it to me.


It’s WordPress this, WordPress that. Despite the broadband going down yesterday there’s plenty going on here. Stay tuned for new developments!

PS. Act Two, Automattic Fundraising. Great news for Automattic and WordPress!

Isn’t Arizona lovely? I hope you didn’t get pricked taking that picture. 😉 This time of year is amazing here (Phoenix). Enjoy yourself and yes, depending on where you are, the Internet connections like to go down every so often.

Welcome to Arizona! Your photo looks like you might be in the Tucson area. I’m up in Phoenix. Enjoy our warm weather and sunshine, and be glad you’re not here during the summer.

Ireland, it is? I am on the Olympic Peninsula, which corresponds to the Emerald City of Seattle, as Ireland does to England. Indeed, I named my website “ThuleDingles”, a part-reference to the Dingle Peninsula. 🙂
