Matt Mullenweg on the distributed workforce

I think that what this new generation of companies is doing - including Automattic, GitHub, Elasticsearch - they're saying, “Why should we constrain ourselves to only hire people that either live in or can commute within a 70-mile distance of the headquarters. That's silly. That is a geographic filter which takes out the vast majority of the talent and intelligence in the world. We can do better.
