Matt Mullenweg and surprise special guest, Andy Peatling of the BuddyPress project stopped by for a one hour live interview on the WordPress Weekly Podcast. Within this interview, a number of questions were answered in regards to WordPress Trademark and logo usage, status updates on Akismet, Bbpress, TalkPress, BuddyPress, WordPress.com, WordPress.org, Theme Repository, Gravatar, the role that Warwick will play within Automattic, an explanation as to how the 2.5 administration redesign became a reality, how much influence do the end users of WordPress have on the development of the project, and last but not least, we discussed the Google Gears implementation into WordPress 2.6. The interview was conducted by yours truly.
I apologize up front for the first 15 minutes of the show. While the interview was taking place, a chord on the speaker phone device was accidentally pulled out, causing it to reboot. Matt later called in with his cell phone which didn’t have the best connection. Shortly there after, the speaker phone device came back on and the rest of the show had good audio quality.
