Oh hey! I’ll be working at Automattic!

Exciting news! After nearly eight years working at Mozilla, I’ve decided to change gears and work on WordPress at Automattic! ๐ŸŽ‰ I’m super excited to work with a distributed team that even includes a certain designer I think is alright. ๐Ÿ˜…

A browser is only part of the battle for an open Internet; another huge part is making sure (especially in light of recent nonsense with Facebook) people and especially businesses can express themselves online without agreeing to give over all their data!ย I want to fight for an open web that empowers people to publish their content anywhere and easily, not just on Facebook. Automattic seems like the place to do it! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

I’ll still be hanging out in Mozilla’s IRC channels and helping out as I can. Firefox is an important piece of user choice online. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

I’ll be in London for WordCamp London next weekend as well, so say hi if you’ll be there! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป
