435 WP-Tonic's Round-Table Show on September 27th, 2019 at 8:30am PST

We have a powerful and insightful show this week. Our main story is a recent podcast discussion between Matt Mullenweg and David Heinemeier Hansson one of the joint founders of Bascamp and also the head of “Ruby on Rails” a leading open source internet development language project. We also have Matt Medeiros of the Matt-Report podcast joining the panel this week to not only to discuss this particular story but also his recent interview on Post Status podcast where he covers some similar areas as “The REWORK podcast!” We also have a special guest panelist Kim Shivler.

Basically, who is going to control the future of WordPress is it only going to be totally be controlled by Matt Mullenweg and his investors or should the hundreds to thousands of volunteers who have given their time “free of charge” over the past 15 years plus of this open source project should also have a clear voice connected to its future direction of this software that drive 34% of all websites on the internet at the present moment?
