See what Matt Mullenweg thinks about being creative in Houston:
“Some of the first money I made was building websites for musicians around [Houston],” he said…. Now, millions of musicians all over the world use WordPress to publish their own websites.Houston Chronicle: WordPress founder finds inspiration in his hometown of Houston, 2016-Sep-28 by Anita Hassan
“When you think of what open source is, it’s a community coming together to create something and then giving it away to the rest of the community,” he said. “Growing up, I saw so much of that in Houston.”Ibid.
“I think that power and creativity comes from diversity,” he said. “So having friends from all different walks of life who were at HSPVA, being surrounded by people who were passionate about things, all of that combined. The melting pot or the gumbo of Houston, I couldn’t imagine growing up in a better place, and that’s one of the things I love returning to.”Ibid.
