    50 million websites, or 20 percent of the entire web, use WordPress software. The force behind WordPress.com is a convention-defying company called Automattic, Inc., whose 120 employees work from anywhere in the world they wish, barely use email, and launch improvements to their products dozens of times a day. With a fraction of the resources of Google, Amazon, or Facebook, they have a similar impact on the future of the Internet. How is this possible? What's different about how they work, and what can other companies learn from their methods? Find out....

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Perhaps people who don't work in the software industry might enjoy this but to those of us who do, his overly excited descriptions of mostly typical activities and people in smaller software companies are a bore.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Scott Berkun again?

    Probably not.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Chris Kayser?

    Anyone who didn't read in such a monotoned and mono-paced voice.
    He also should have learned how to pronounce common computer terms such as Linux. Its pronounced lynn-ux, not line-ux. I cringed every time I heard this. There were others as well.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Year Without Pants?

    Remove all of the isn't-this-guy amazing worshiping of people. Remove the weren't-we-so-cool attitude. Too much hype of not much specialness.
