10 Minute Lightning Talk for the Automattic Meetup at Seaside, September 2010
Automattic is the company I work for. The company is distributed worldwide and once a year we gather at a remote location and meet face-to-face. This year, all the employees are taking a little time during the meetup to compose and give at least one presentation for each other, talking about any subject we are passionate about.
For this presentation I chose the subject of photography. Specifically, taking one photo from start to publish describing how I took the shot and the editing steps I chose.
Like many bloggers—Automattic is also known as WordPress—I’m passionate about photography and I felt that many of the other people it the room might be interested in it also—our founder and CEO’s online handle is “photomatt.”
I hope you enjoy this presentation!
This was the second presentation I gave that day. I composed it just after I finished the first.
This presentation will be expanded into a post around Christmas. Look for it!

http://automattic.com/ is a company, that creating some plugins for wordpress based websites?
Automattic is probably better known for developing WordPress itself, than for the plugins on WordPress. 🙂
