Matt Mullenweg’s Answer May Have Been Somewhat Misleading

Matt was quite specific in his answer to my question — he specifically focused on WordPress.ORG

Yet he gave this answer from the stage which is a premier focus of many WordPress users’ attention: WordCamp Europe — i.e., WordCamp.ORG

WordCamp Europe had a “LiveStream” — hosted at YouTube.COM

Why would WordPress users be monetised this way — having their data incorporated into Alphabet’s monetisation models? Was it perhaps because Google was the first and foremost sponsor of WordCamp Europe 2022?

WordPress, WordCamp and Google are three distinct marketplaces, but there may indeed be a sort of affiliated network of cross-media promotion, monetisation, advertising and such going on — or is this completely “out of the question“?
