I was recently interviewed by Jolie O’Dell from Read Write Web.
Jolie did an awesome job of editing so that I didn’t look like an idiot. For example, I am 6′4″ tall, and I accidentally kicked the camera during the interview. She ninja’d that right out of there.
Regarding “A WordPress for Forums”: I’ve heard a lot of people saying that since I got down here to Boulder & TechStars. I think people see the correlation because WordPress and Vanilla are both open source projects, they both focus on delivering something elegant and easy to use, and Vanilla is now trying to do what WordPress has done by turning it into a real business through these various revenue streams. I met Matt Mullenweg this past Monday and joked with him that I had purchased VanillaPress.com!
The bottom line is that WordPress is amazing, and I find the comparison very flattering.
Thanks to Jolie for the interview!
