Big Omaha Video Series: Matt Mullenweg & Robert Scoble

December 28, 2010 by

Produced by Silicon Prairie News. Video by Malone & Company. Post-production by Event1 Video.

Today, we’re releasing the ninth presentation in our video series from Big Omaha 2010! This video features Matt Mullenweg, founder of Automattic (the company behind WordPress, Akismet, Gravatar, IntenseDebate and more), interviewed by Robert Scoble, technical evangelist, author and blogger best known for his blog Scobleizer and his work with Building43. (Recorded on May 14, 2010.)

In their discussion, Mullenweg shares his view on the evolution of blogging as well as his passion for open source software. Mullenweg has already made a massive impact on the publishing and software industry, but he expresses his thought that there is still much work to do and innovation to take place.

Make sure to thank Mullenweg (@photomatt on Twitter) and Scoble (@scobleizer on Twitter) for coming in for the event and helping to shape Big Omaha 2010 into an amazing experience.

Big Omaha is Silicon Prairie News’ premier annual event held each May to inspire, educate and connect entrepreneurs, especially those with an interest in the tech industry. Big Omaha 2011 will be held May 11-13, 2011 at KANEKO.
