Not really sure this is what Matt has in the cards, but they have been making a lot of moves as of late.

Doubt it. The company doesn't need the money and I doubt that Matt needs the stress.

I agree, Mike. Never say never, but I think Matt really likes being a private company, as strange as that may sound with how much he's been talking about open source.

Staying private allows him to focus on moving the web forward, and democratizing publishing. Shareholders don't typically have the same goals.
