WCLV: What do you love most about WordPress?

NM: The community. I think the strength and viability of an open source project depends greatly upon the community behind it, and the WordPress community is like no other.

WCLV: Who is YOUR WordPress hero and why?

NM: Anyone who gives back to the WP community is my hero, whether they contribute to core, write plugins, create themes, organize a meetup, put together a WordCamp or help out in the forums or with writing documentation.

WCLV: What do you love about Las Vegas?

NM: Roulette!

WCLV: Favorite book and why:

NM: Life of Pi by Yann Martel, because it blew me away. I didn’t know what to expect when I started it, but I loved every word. I loved that it was two books in one – this philosophical exploration of religion followed by the grandest of adventures.

WCLV: Vodka or tequila?

NM: Vodka. No contest.

WCLV: Are you smarter than a 4th Grader? Do you think you can dance?

NM: I hope so. On both counts.
