Join us this month for a Q&A with Matt Inman, creator of The Oatmeal. Using a combo of keen business sense and real-world comic familiarity, the man behind The Oatmeal— 27 year old Matt Inman— draws, sketches and codes his way to a successful business making people laugh.

His site, receiving more than four million unique hits per month, was recently named in Time Magazine’s Top Blogs of 2010. If you haven’t yet met Matt or seen his site, The Oatmeal, click here see an overview of his work from his appearance on Last Call with Carson Daly: 

Behind his wit and unassuming presence, Matt has a powerful story about his journey and how social media played a role in his success. His experience includes co-founder of SEOmoz, and founder and creator of an online dating website which he later sold, Mingle2 (the entire site from concept to launch was built in only 66.5 hours). He now focuses his energies full time on The Oatmeal
