I built dozens of content management systems that generated millions of dollars in value. Matt Mullenweg built one content management system, gave it away for free, became a leader in the open source revolution and generated more than a billion dollars in value. Maybe I was charging too much! Since 2003, I have run myContinue reading “Finally, WordPress”

At the time, a single YouTube subscriber was worth an estimated $0.10/year to publishers, but an email subscriber was worth $1.25/year.
