Knock, knock…

Is this thing on?

A funny story about the VaultPress name: We were trying to think of a name forever — nothing quite fit. We wanted something that wasn’t just “backups” but really captured the 360 degree view of what VaultPress does, and is going to do in the future. The inspiration eventually came from Hae Min Cho, a San Francisco Korean accupressure therapist, not unlike how the name for Akismet was inspired by my sister Charleen.

I think that was close to 9 months ago. It’s crazy how time flies when you’re building something from the ground up.

One day I’ll talk about all the names we didn’t use. :)

    Hey Matt,

    I love the tone and lilt of the prose on your site. May I ask who does your marketing? I’d love to get some of that action for our site.

    Thanks,

    Hey Matt!

    Thanks for the shout out! I’m really jazzed that I was able to contribute something to WordPress. It makes me smile. :) Someday soon I hope to be blogging like a pro. Keep bugging me about it. I like the encouragement.

    Be well, stay loose, and remember: Learning good posture requires constant vigilance, but it gives the priceless reward of vibrant health. And the chicks really dig it. :)
