Until just yesterday, when Wired’s Margaret Rhodes interviewed me about joining Automattic and I shared this number with her as if to brag, “26% of the web runs on Open Source WordPress” … it finally hit me! That didn’t mean the number was a huge number, it meant that most of the Web was not running on Open Source WordPress. 74%. Which means that a lot more of the Web is running on closed source systems today than it used to. And a lot more closed source tech companies are in fashion right now—as I got to see by spending my last 3 years in the venture capital industry. I realized that Open Source is treated as a curiosity, by myself included, and not the revolutionary movement that it was, and should/could be today.

We took our boys to the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Discovery and Science over the weekend. They both had an absolute blast and we highly recommend the museum for kids of all ages 🙂

I did my five-mile walk yesterday on the Noland Trail in Newport News, VA. This is a walking path that I frequented as a child but have not completed in 15+ years. It was nice to revisit some old milestones while conquering new ones.
