in which i showcase my mad research skillz

Another secret staff member sighted in the wild, would seem to have been in post about a week, CV suggests hired to handle public relations. No trace of her on the forums, so obviously that ‘three weeks in support for all hirings’ policy has been junked.

Another box ticked. They’ve been needing someone to handle public relations for a very long time. Matt has got much better at it over the past few years, true (I remember when he advocated googlebombing a host that complained WP was a resource hog, but hey, he was a kid at the time and he didn’t have to pretend to be professional) but he does have an unfortunate tendency to undo his hard work with the occasional inexplicable freakout.

Yes, I’ve been quiet lately. They’ve been quiet. They don’t want to rock any boats at the moment.

  1. Well, that at least. Matt is really quite embarrassingly bad. Not theat I _like_ PR people, of course, but they do generally result in a less crazy-looking finished product.

    Errrrrrrrrrrrrr – did I mention PR agencies as an unmistakeable indicator of further financing ?🙂

    Wow! I know her. Well, know her in the sense that we have commented on some of each others’ videos on vimeo.

    I was wondering why it was so quiet around here. I figured the world of .com must have been quiet, for there to be so little to talk about. Makes one wonder what Automattic has up its sleeves.
