Gravatar Sold

Filed under: Asides | Tags: , , , | October 17, 2007 7:27 pm

Automattic has bought Gravatar. Om sees it as a larger trend, but to us it was just a good fit.

  1. Hey nice, congrats! :)

  3. Congrats! That sounds exciting!

  4. Crazy cool! A big congrats is in order. It will be interesting to see where Gravatar ends up with the buy.

  5. Is it going to sneak into the next WordPress update, by any chance?

  6. This is great news! I was going to suggest that the original Gravatar definition that I provided on Wikipedia (that was edited a few times after by others - so cool) will need updating, but I see that it has been removed and incorporated into the entry for Avatar, which has been done quite well, actually. I wonder if Tom remembers when I emailed him to let him know that his creation had a definition…

  8. Going to close off comments, go ahead and leave them on the Gravatar blog. :)
