I told the WooThemes story at Internetdagarna in Stockholm.

This isn’t my office today, but one of my team members. We’ve got a pretty cool page at Automattic which showcases our office space for the day. Check it out!
Our distributed team at Automattic hail from nearly every continent and 36 countries around the world.
When we launched WooCommerce back in 2011, WordPress only powered 13,1% of all websites online, but it has almost doubled that since then, and now powers a whopping 25% of all sites on the Internet.
I think open source generally grows stronger and more secure the more popular it is and more people it has working on it. We all benefit from a common platform we can build on and then differentiate on top of it, instead of reinventing the wheel over and over again for no good reason.

Back in 2012 we had a talented designer do some posters for WooThemes dubbed WooVille, and this is one of my favorites. I’m in the process of getting our WooVille comic series printed as posters for my home office. Sitting at 25 people, we managed to double in size over the next three years before we were acquired by Automattic.
