My name is Ryan Boren. I am a lead developer of WordPress and a co-conspirator at Automattic. I live in Dripping Springs Texas with my wife, two kids, two dogs, a flock of chickens, a herd of goats, and twelve aquariums.

Where I’m at: Normalize cannabis and cryptography. Embrace neurodiversity. Champion the mobile web. Democratize web publishing. Open all source. WordPress, the open web, and civil liberties. An atheist, vegan, transhumanist, civil libertarian, skeptic (all lowercase) with a fanciful hope to one day legally smoke a joint in a self-driving thorium car while crossing an international border without stopping to show papers.
