Season 2, Episode 3 Of Walking With Matt

Matt Mullenweg is not just the founder of WordPress and now Automattic, but he was also my lucky roommate on this week-long 200km hike through Spain. Not only is he warm at night, but he really knows how to work that loofa in the shower.

We share many commonalities including the love of writing, Burning Man, hiking, and experimental and self-exploration use mind-expanding substances. You can see the poor guy has a bit of a limp here, as he had a knee problem that got worse and worse as the days went on. Down below, I’ll share some photos of Matt while we walked along the Camino and some quick thoughts and stories.

Live edit of an image from Burning Man using Aurora HDR 2019

Here's a video I made shortly after the release of the entirely new Aurora HDR 2019. I use it to edit a Burning Man photo both from a single RAW and from multiple exposures. There are many new features. Probably the best is the new HDR algorithm that doesn't require any "clean up" after the initial creation. A big part of that is the elimination of noise and halos, which cause problems before in some pesky situations. Also now there are LUTs (I'll show you how to use them) and indoor architecture photography has really been improved when it comes to bright light streaming in through windows.

You can download a copy of Aurora HDR 2019 from my store.

Some photos of Matt Mullenweg while we walked along the Camino trail

Very few people know this, but this is exactly how Matt came out of the womb, beard and all. His mom was like, “Well I’ll be darned!”

One awesome thing about Matt is that when you are talking to him, you’re the only person in the world. Here he is talking with Gia-Miin Fuh, Kevin Kelly’s genius wife that works at 23-And-Me.

No one can rock a scallop shell like Matt. I told him that with those sunglasses that he could be a hardcore pornography director.

A lot like everyone on the trek, Matt seemed to know either a little bit or a lot about everything. On the very first night, we walked across the bridge from Portugal to Spain in the dark. It was quite romantic. We talked all about the different sort of hallucinogens we’ve imbibed and how they have shaped and expanded our minds (for the better).

Here’s Matt Hackett, Hugh Howey, and Matt somewhere in one of the more forested areas of our walk. We would often pair-off or triple-up and have all kinds of interesting discussions, solving all the world’s problems!

Here’s Matt talking to Kevin Kelly at a rest break. By this time, Matt’s knee was really bothering him, and none of us minded having a break. We were in no hurry to get anywhere in particular.

And last, here is Craig Mod giving life to Matt with his noodly appendage.
