Mariano Amartino

Mariano has run the first WordCamp outside San Francisco almost 3 years ago, bringing Matt to Argentina… and he is helping people on at least 3 countries in Latinamerica to run their own WordCamps without even asking to be mentioned.

Mariano hizo el primer WordCamp fuera de San Francisco hace 3 años y trajo a Matt Mullenweg a Argentina (ya 2 veces) y ahora está ayudando a otros 3 países de la región a armar sus propios Wordcamps sin siquiera pedir ser mencionado y eso vale resaltarlo.

Matt Mullenweg

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!
