This guy needs no introduction. He is the reason this honours “contest” even EXISTS! Due to him, millionaires have been created. Due to him, kids who would normally be out playing football are now able to become international superstars by using nothing but their fingers.
Matt Mullenweg, deserves to be honoured for creating this magnificent piece of software – WordPress.
And if that is not enough, you probably all know that he (with the rest of Automattic) gave the trademark of WordPress to the WordPress Foundation so that it will be protected and stay open source forever. If you don’t vote for him, you are either evil or part of Joomla!
Web Developer / Freelancer. You might know me from ThemeLab.com or CustomTheme.com. I tweet oodles of WordPress-related stuff on @themelab.
Rural Eastern Canadian, homeschooler, quilter, old home renovator and I know some stuff about WordPress Networks.
Shawn has filled a gaping hole in the WP tutorial world. That is, tutorials for folks who’ve never used WP before and wouldn’t know a post from a page, or category from a tag.
The tutorials at WP101.com are well structured, thorough and at a good steady pace.
Designer/developers can now direct their clients to Shawn’s WP101 site and let his excellent tutorials teach them how to use WP.
For us designer/devs who suck at training – it’s a godsend!
Shawn’s a legend and should be knighted for services to the WP community!
