I got introduced to WordPress when it was in version 0.7 and came with a “classic theme”. After doing a lot of copy-paste theme building jobs, I did develop a lot of themes, plugins and sites that eventually made me more money than anything else (stocks, web apps et al). This is a small note of thanks to the shockingly small but brilliant team at Automattic who have helped me and thousands of people around the world eat food.
A special note of thanks to Jacob, my good friend from school who forced me to give up my plans to build a CMS learn WordPress, way back in 2006 . Thanks mate! To the wonderful Adam and Gary at Web Movement, let us continue to build more ecommerce plugins for WordPress and rid the world of garbage websites!
