Pretty exciting day in the WordPress world as Automattic (the company I work for) acquires WooCommerce. I’m gaining 55 new coworkers today which is incredibly exciting but also slightly terrifying. It’s getting harder and harder to keep up with everything and everyone and even harder to meet everyone. Look forward to the chaos at our next all-hands company Grand Meetup. It’ll be great to see us democratize ecommerce over the next years in this newly joint venture.

PS: if you’d like to join the chaos, we’re hiring just as much as ever
PPS: if you’re reading this post on Facebook, via twitter or another social network, then it came to you via an all new Publicize codebase, which I’ve personally been working on for a few months. Excited to get it released to all WordPress.com and Jetpack users shortly
