Last night, on The Odeon Bars’s main stage at the WordPress 100K Party, WordPress’s founder Matt Mullenweg (pictured on the right) announced that he is creating a new company for WordPress and that international man of mystery, Jonas Luster (pictured on the left), will be employee #1.

SFist’s own Jackson West scooped the story and filed his report live from the bar and Ryan King shot some great video of Matt’s annoucement.

Here are the photos that I shot of this momentus occasion.

UPDATE: Matt has posted an update about what happend with WordPress Inc. on the WordPress Codex.
