Matt also posted his thoughts on the future of work in response to one aspect of the Forbes article.
As a new Automattic employee (an Automattician), it’s exciting to see this much coverage of my new employer. Without a doubt, one of the (many) benefits that drew me to my new position was the distributed nature of our business. Since starting with Automattic, I’ve worked from Somerville, MA; San Francisco, CA; Portland, OR; and Derry, NH. Having the flexibility to be this geographically untethered is so important to me right now, and there are few other companies I could be working for that would afford me this freedom.
