Om is back with a $29.5m post

Our favorite tech blogger Om Malik is slowly coming back from his “medical episode” as he calls it. Today he posts about WordPress.com’s parent company raising $29.5m

Matt Mullenweg, founder of Automattic and creator of open-source blogging system WordPress, stopped by my apartment earlier this week. Matt, who is one of my closest friends, brought his Texan sense of humor and all-around good cheer, both of which were much needed following my little medical episode. While we were chatting, he let it slip that Automattic had raised a whopping $29.5 million in a Series B Round of funding, including a strategic investment from The New York Times Co. True Ventures led the round, which includes previous investors Polaris Ventures and Radar Ventures. (Full disclosure: both Automattic and GigaOM are backed by True Ventures.)

Om, good to see you back and congrats to Matt. We use WordPress and love it!
