WordPress Follow-Up

More on the WordPress link-spam fiasco from Andy Baio, including a link to Matt Mullenweg’s response (written while on vacation in Italy) and a message from the “CEO” at Hot Nacho, the company that paid Mullenweg to host the articles and ads.

Baio’s coverage of this has been fantastic — his investigation thorough, and his commentary fair. There’s been a rush of mainstream media coverage of this story, not a single bit of which has added anything more than Baio’s coverage. This is weblogging-as-journalism.
