    Great to hear Matt is coming over again… and even better to see that you’re inviting people to submit questions in advance. Matt’s one of the most inspiring speakers I’ve ever heard, and we should make the most of this opportunity. The anarchy of last year’s ‘raise your hand to ask a question’ session produced too many of the ‘same old’ questions; or questions to which he couldn’t possibly give a useful answer, and I for one found it very frustrating. We definitely should have all questions being submitted and quality-controlled in advance; plus, I’d suggest, an on-stage ‘host’ to keep things ticking along.

    Simon, I definitely appreciate being able to see and hear the person asking the question directly. Occasionally there are less generally interesting questions, but I think the benefit is more connection and sometimes that random thing can be really interesting or make me think of something I haven’t before.

I would be interested in learning more about future plans regarding Now that it’s open to theme developers from around the world, are there plans to build a huge themes directory / marketplace like / ThemeForest / Creative Market / etc… or do you prefer a smaller themes collection and limit the maximum number of available themes on
