NewsForge Interview with Mitchell Baker

Thursday June 27th, 2002

NewsForge has a post-1.0 interview with Mitchell Baker,'s Chief Lizard Wrangler. The interview mainly focusses on the reaction to Mozilla 1.0, which has been downloaded over half a million times since its launch (not including downloads from mirror sites). Mitchell notes that "Press reports have been good, developer response has been excited and users have been happy with the quality of Mozilla 1.0." She singles out documentation as an area that needs improvement in the future (there's been some productive discussion about this on netscape.public.mozilla.documentation recently).

There's a thread in the comments section of that article that asks how the contributors to Mozilla get paid. Hmm. Well, the contributors get the satisfaction of helping to create an awesome (sp?) browser, mail client, etc. Next, they get the experience and knowledge from coding etc. Finally, if they work for Netscape, they get paid by Netscape, obviously. Correct me if I'm wrong.
