Wax on


After many years of thinking I should, and not getting round to it, I now have to start a blog. My hand has been forced by my new employer, but I’m hardly complaining.

That’s a long-winded way to announce that I have joined the team at Automattic as a developer. This will be surprising to most in the WordPress community, who would barely know who I am, but not so surprising to the stalwarts of the bbPress community, where I have been contributing for a little while now.

I’ll be focusing most of my efforts on bbPress in the short term and I look forward to getting it’s releases back on track. You’ll find me in the #bbpress room on Freenode IRC most of the time, so I encourage members of the bbPress community to ping me there for instant gratification (or disappointment depending on circumstances).

My previous work was for the Omnium Open Project, a collaboration software based at the University of New South Wales, Australia. I’m thankful for the opportunities that came from working there and I wish them all the best.
