Wizard of WordPress: Speaking of Matt and WordPress 2.2, CNET’s Rafe Needleman sits down with Matt for a video interview and delves into a lot more than just WordPress. The interview is divided into two parts. The first part, linked above, deals mostly with blogging in general, money from blogging, US candidate blogs Matt’s opinions on the blogosphere. The second part deals more with WordPress, new version 2.2, widgets, Web 2.0, Akismet and the like. The title for the second interview really threw me off and I won’t ruin the surprise any further. Matt is a really personable and articulate video interviewee and I am sure his presentations are just as much fun to attend. Every time I listen to him speak on almost any topic about the web, his knowledge and his stance really complement each other.
