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. Champion the mobile web. Democratize web publishing. Open all source. WordPress, the open web, and civil liberties. An atheist, vegan, transhumanist, 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.
