February 20, 2014 — Steve Jobs had Steve Wozniak. Bill Gates had Paul Allen. Matt
Mullenweg had… Mike Little.
In January 2003, Mike responded to a post on Matt’s blog about forking
their blogging tool – and thus was WordPress born. Ten years on, it
powers more than 20% of the web.
But whilst Matt has gone on to fame and fortune, Mike has kept a very
low profile. In this keynote session at the first WordCamp London, he
finally tells his side of the story – from dropping out of high
school, to running the Prime Minister’s website.
June 4, 2013 — In 2003, Mike Little and Matt Mullenweg took control of an abandoned blogging platform – and turned it into the CMS which today powers 18% of the web.
In this interview recorded at the WordPress 10th birthday party held in Manchester, England, Mike tells Code For The People’s Simon Dickson the story of those early days – from his first exposure to computers in the 1970s, to the fateful comment left on Matt Mullenweg’s blog, to his rather slow realisation of what WordPress had become.
March 9, 2010 — Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little, founding developers of WordPress, discuss the history of WordPress, the open source philosophy behind it, and their backgrounds in this interview recorded at WordCamp UK 2009 by Gurbir Singh.
