Matt Mullenweg on the Beeper acquisition, adding to their previous acquisition of Texts:

Today the announcement went out that we’re combining the best technology from Beeper and Texts to create a great private, secure, and open source messaging client for people to have control of their communications. We’re going to use the Beeper brand, because it’s fun.

Seems like we’re in an interesting, perhaps pivotal moment for text messaging and DMs, and Automattic is set up to be an important player. Smart strategy.
