Overview

Scott Berkun only agreed to taking a job at WordPress.com (the software that powers about 30% of all websites – worldwide) in 2010, when the founders allowed him to write a book about his experience afterwards. The Year Without Pants is the result.

Given that Automattic is worth over a billion dollars, that might be a curious request to make for such a prestigious job. However, he knew going in that what he was about to experience would be vastly different from most other companies, and worth sharing with the world.

Thanks to Scott's request, we now get to learn some great lessons about company culture from one of the most creative companies in the world.
