Air Mozilla Relaunches with Live Mitchell Baker Interview on Wednesday

Tuesday July 10th, 2007

The Air Mozilla video webcast will return on Wednesday 11th July when Mozilla Corporation CEO Mitchell Baker answers questions in a live interview. The broadcast will begin at 2:00pm Pacific Daylight Time (9:00pm UTC/GMT) and is scheduled to last one hour.

Asa Dotzler, who will be hosting the segment, has posted some details about the relaunch of Air Mozilla. According to his post, Mitchell will talk about the state of the Mozilla project and answer questions from the audience. Asa hopes that Air Mozilla will become a regular feature, growing to feature "not just interviews, but screencasts with tips and tricks, news segments, and other community generated content."

Viewers can watch the webcast at air.mozilla.com, which will require the Adobe Flash Player 9 plugin (available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X). A discussion will take place alongside the broadcast in the #airmozilla channel on irc.mozilla.org. During the show, viewers will be able to ask Mitchell questions by sending a message to the airmozilla user on either the AIM, Yahoo! Messenger or Google Talk networks. Questions can also be emailed to airmozilla@mozilla.com before or during the webcast.

Paul Kim has said that he is unhappy that the live Air Mozilla webcast will require the proprietary Flash Player. He has promised that the video will be made available in several formats after broadcast, including a recording encoded with the open Theora codec.

The first Air Mozilla webcast marked the launch of Mozilla Firefox 1.0 in late 2004.

Our initial webcast is capped at 800 simultaneous streams - if you try to access the webcast and can't view, please try again in a few minutes. The webcast host we're working with, Mogulus, is working to increase the number of streams they can provide very soon.

I want the "Air Mozilla" logo to be the Mozilla lizard in black silhouette with his arms and legs spread out (like he just jumped up and is flying through the air to his left). Air Mozilla's left arm would be holding a colored Firefox earth logo. In effect, Air Mozilla would be slam dunking Firefox for the win.

Sounds like 800 will run out pretty quickly... Or am I overestimating the number of mozilla uber-geeks in the world?

We're not sure naylor83. We'll definitely track attendance to adjust for the next webcast.

I noticed that MSNBC is now allowing its videos to be displayed if you are using a Firefox browser. I really think Firefox needs to stay on top of that and not allow Microsoft to try to used underhanded trick to force it out of the market.
