People who have Inspired Me: Matt Mullenweg

Matt Mullenweg is the creator of WordPress, but he is so much more.  He’s a little bit younger than me but he’s been voted as one of the most influential people in IT. He has also been voted as one of the top 25 most influential people on the Internet.  He is just a normal guy but he has an authentic belief in community, that together we can be so much more than when we’re alone.  Through the different software he has developed, he has inspired me because he started something new.
