Mullenweg also asserted that he is now ready to take on the demanding job of CEO, quipping that "it’s obvious that no one in their twenties should run a company."
He concluded by citing that he is now "30 and two days old."
For reference, Mullenweg founded Automattic in 2005.
To reiterate, Automattic is the company supporting WordPress.com, with a defined separation between the commercial version of the software from the open source project.
Automattic also powers WordPress.com VIP, a premium service aimed at the enterprise with a much larger feature set, including support for custom code, 24/7 customer service and what is touted to be a more robust content management system.
