This summer I finally got to read some books and this was one of my favorites. The Year Without Pants is a book about one man’s peek into the WordPress.com community. How they work, how they think and what their culture is like. It’s also about some interesting thoughts about the future of work.
I’m a big fan of WordPress, and WordPress.com. The founder, Matt Mullenweg, is one of my heroes. I was really excited to read the book, and was not disappointed.
It’s a behind-the-scenes look at the company behind WordPress.com and the unique work culture that contributes to its phenomenal success. 50 million websites, or twenty percent of the entire web, use WordPress software. WordPress.com’s 120 employees work from anywhere in the world, barely use email, and launch improvements to their products dozens of times a day. What’s different about how they work, and what can other companies learn from their methods?
The book reveals insights on creativity, productivity, and leadership from the kind of workplace that might be in everyone’s future.
