According to a LimeCanvas post about the Australia and New Zealand components of the tour, Mullenweg is touring the Asia Pacific to “help spread the WordPress brand and interact with established communities that support the open source CMS.”

Mullenweg’s tour is a great chance for people in Asia, Australia, and New Zealand to hear from the WordPress founder on the future of the web’s most popular CMS. The sessions will be interactive, so if you’ve got a burning question you’ve been dying to ask, this is your opportunity!
Mullenweg visited Australia for WordCamp in November 2008, and based on the photos on his blog, it looks like he had a good time . . .
