Matt Mullenweg buys and I’m left with a lame old .com


Valleywag wrote a post speculating what could be Mullenweg’s “life change” mentioned in a recent twitter. This comes in the wake of a recent $29.5 million round of funding. Matt Mullenweg is the founder and creator of Automattic, the maker of wordpress, the blogging platform of which this and many blogs run.

So what was the entrepreneur twittering about? The purchase of, his new blog domain. .tt is the namespace for Trinadad and Tobago, and while it costs a hefty $500 a year to register, I can definitely say I’m jealous.
