Automattic Acquires IntenseDebate

IntenseDebate + Automattic
We’re extremely pleased to announce that IntenseDebate will now be joining the Automattic team! This is a big day for us and we couldn’t be more stoked about what it means for the future of IntenseDebate.

So what does this mean for you, our valued users? A couple of things:
1.) We will be temporarily going back into an invite only system. This won’t affect our current users, but new installs will require an invite code. This is just to give us a little time to ramp up the hardware and get our ducks in a row as we join the Automattic team.

2.) You’ll be seeing IntenseDebate a lot more often. We’re really excited about the distribution possibilities this opens up, so expect to see our comment system and use your IntenseDebate profile on a lot more blogs.

3.) You can look forward to tighter integration with some of the other Automattic joints including Akismet and Gravatar.

But don’t worry!
You will still be able to use IntenseDebate on Typepad, Tumblr, Blogger, Movable Type, and other platforms with more to come! We will continue to improve our comment system and your commenters’ experience. IntenseDebate will continue to enhance and encourage conversation on your blog and build your reader community.

It’s business as usual except we will be ramping up in size and features, and integrating more closely with other Automattic properties to provide an even better commenting experience. The IntenseDebate name and logo isn’t going anywhere – it’s just going to get way more Intense! It’s been a long road to get here, but we’re just getting started…

  2. congrats Jon and Issac! The work you guys have done to build a viable technology has been fantastic. While its great for Boulder and TechStars, I think its phenomenal for Automattic to get talent like you two. Congrats again.

  5. Congrats guys…This is really a good news. I use ID on one of my blogs, but would love to see more customization possibilities for me to move completely to this system.
    I will stick around for some time to see, if this acquisition brings some fruitful results for users.
    Thanks and Congrats again.

  6. Why did I need to hear about this eight times? Why did I need to hear about this once? I bet you don't get to tell me about it another time.

  157. [...] IntenseDebate was recently acquired by Automattic (creators of WordPress.com), so they will most definitely be working on tightening up the integration with WordPress. I believe that they recently updated the WordPress plugin to have WordPress display the comments, rather than displaying them via JavaScript. That’s definitely a good step towards making it more search engine friendly. I’d like to also see them make changes to the profile pages, to allow people (and search engines) to see all of the comments that IntenseDebate users have posted. addthis_url = ‘http%3A%2F%2Fgeeklad.com%2Fdisqus-vs-intense-debate'; addthis_title = ‘Disqus+vs.+Intense+Debate'; addthis_pub = ”; [...]

  158. [...] Automattic owns them.  This is a big *sigh* of relief because Automattic isn’t going anywhere.  And if you happened to either forget, they’re the makers of WordPress.  Oh yes.  That’s right.  So having WordPress and IntenseDebate on the same team means that tighter integration is possible, better offerings for Automattic’s other joints (Gravatar and Akismet), and a resulting better and more robust product offering as a whole.  WordPress is constantly evolving and getting better and that type of philosophical backing will make IntenseDebate really shine.  And, since Ma.tt is all about Open Source… who knows… but ID could go Open Source too…?  (I can dream, can’t I?)

  165. This is great news for both ID and Automattic. I'm doubly excited about this as we now have an investor in common (True Ventures). Can't wait to see ID get hooked deeper into the WP platform.

    Comment by colin_ake60861 — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  184. Sorry but not everybody sees this as a plus. You may want to do some research on how poorly Matt operates his company and how little he truly thinks about customer service, how he uses Akismet as a censorship tool, or how little he respects those around him. Does ID feel that racist and bigoted remarks towards those who have physical handicaps is acceptable? Matt and Automattic does.

    For all of us IntenseDebate is our baby. We’ve always dreamt of an opportunity like this. I imagine that Jon and Isaac are blown away by the thought that something they created and worked on tirelessly now has the potential to reach millions of people. I know that Tom, Austin and I all are. It’s pretty wild!

  223. Currently we're not giving out invite codes. We want to make sure that we can handle all of the new installs. We'll be dishing out a limited but growing number of invites as we gear up.

    I know it's torture, but we'll be ready for the party soon!

    Comment by james11281 — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  232. I want to add my congrats to the mix. I LOVE WordPress. My only regret is that I went with Disqus and didn't know about you all. I really like Disqus but this new "deal" with you all makes me want to switch. I like all your bells and whistles for my regular commenter.

    My only concern is losing the threaded discussions that have happened while I have been on Disqus. Actually, that is a pretty big concern.

    Comment by RThomasETC — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  233. Firstly, congratulations on the acquisition, Automattic has been making some smart moves and this is definitely one of them.

    My question is how this acquisition will affect the threaded comments in core, if at all.

    Comment by Ryan McCue — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  234. Awesomeness! If this means I get to see IDC in wordpress.com, I'll be a happy puppy!

    I'm certain that with the resources and expertise of automattic behind you, we'll be seeing a lot of good stuff in the future

  258. I'm actually not too happy with this. I tried ID, but didn't like having my comment stored off my server (same as Disqus). I like SezWho better, and have it on all my blogs. I hope there will be an option, with WP, to not use ID if we prefer.

  261. I have used and implemented ID (Intense Debate) on multiple blogs. I wrote about it here and followed up here. The product is awesome and is much more than just a commenting system. Their current support and design team is top notch. Regardless of question, problem, or suggestion…they are all very professional and responsive. I believe you all will enjoy utilizing this great resource.

    To all of the ID staff – CONGRATULATIONS!!! You deserve this success. Go out and have a drink on me (Michael….put it on Brad's tab).

    Comment by chase_barf55451 — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  262. Great… I was planning on installing ID on a site and now it's unavailable. How long do we have to wait for it to be available again? I'm installing it on a 2.3.3 WordPress installation… I don't really need any new updates in the software…

    Comment by StacMasterS — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am

    Comment by gwenbell — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  267. Days and days late to the party, but congratulations, guys!

    I've been off ID for a while on my Blogger blog, but I still think you've got a great product. I'm looking forward to seeing how things work with the automattic integration. That should really be tight.

    I just launched a new hosted wp blog and would signed up for an invite code, but I wouldn't rush to give me one. I need to get some traffic before it would be truly worthwhile.

    Anyway, congratulations!

    Comment by coyotesqrl — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  268. that sounds like music to my ears. I hope that the new plugin that you're working on wouldn't slow up the loading page as much. Cause right now.. while i love ID, i find that it is the longest to load up on my blog.

  288. Any more recent news on a timetable for new invites or when us WordPress users will see its implementation? I like the way ID looks and I would love to use it on my blogs and Tumblr site.

    Oh, and congratulations on becoming a part of the Automatic team.

  292. [...] Automattic owns them.  This is a big *sigh* of relief because Automattic isn’t going anywhere.  And if you happened to either forget, they’re the makers of WordPress.  Oh yes.  That’s right.  So having WordPress and IntenseDebate on the same team means that tighter integration is possible, better offerings for Automattic’s other joints (Gravatar and Akismet), and a resulting better and more robust product offering as a whole.  WordPress is constantly evolving and getting better and that type of philosophical backing will make IntenseDebate really shine.  And, since Ma.tt is all about Open Source… who knows… but ID could go Open Source too…?  (I can dream, can’t I?) [...]

  293. I'm just having a hard time trying to find ID implemented blogs that i could offer my commentary to. Is there something in the works to add such a listing of sites?
