    As stated in that link: http://automattic.com/about/">http://automattic.com/about

    I think they also oversee the platform development, though of course since the platform is open source there's nothing to stop you forking it and creating a rival platform (depending on what license they use)

    Matt Mullenweg is credited as the original creator of wordpress and runs automattic.   I have talked to Matt, he is a really cool guy and has some great ideas.   He is pro open source and sees his wordpress as a open source community project and not product for sale.   

    With that said, the only thing could be bought would be a hosting company that hosts wordpress websites.  Currently I believe GoDaddy.com is the largest wordpress hosting company in the world.

     

    BTW, your website looks like an http://about.me page.... but I digress.  Tongue Out

    @pathfinder: But of course, it's an artist's resume/portfolio. The black & white give it class and professionalism.
