In her commentary on the podcast, Sarah Gooding expressed interest in the way that Mullenweg has managed the growth of WordPress. Mullenweg kept WordPress small in the beginning because he didn’t want to lose the efficiency and excitement of the company. As it has grown, Automattic has been able to maintain its culture. In the interview, Mullenweg says,
Nothing I’ve ever done has ever been alone. It’s always been with other people.
