Matt Mullenweg’s Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, has made 16 acquisitions since 2007, as listed by WP Tavern. While it’s hard to know what those acquisitions actually meant for the company, it looks like a lot of services and talent has disappeared within the larger company. Personally, I miss the Poster app, which could’ve been so great, but there are other opportunities on that list that seem lost. Or not, because obviously I know nothing of the innards of Automattic.
