You may have seen the news allready.
I won’t claim to be a fast blogger, instantly reacting to the worlds events but I do like to put in my 2p when something interesting happens.
Automattic has raised a US$29.5 million in Series B funding to position the company to
execute on our vision of a better web not just in blogging
I have been thinking recently about moving this blog and self hosting it. Not only that but moving away from WordPress to s9y or one of the other php based blogging tools. Mostly, truth be known, for security reasons.
But given WordPress is the software I know and it is easy to use and I know they are working on making it better and with this level of investment I am happy to be sticking with WordPress.
And yes, my own blog runs WordPress. It’s just so damned easy to install :-)
