NewsForge Interview with Mitchell Baker

Thursday June 27th, 2002

NewsForge has a post-1.0 interview with Mitchell Baker, mozilla.org'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).

"Finally, if they work for Netscape, they get paid by Netscape, obviously. Correct me if I'm wrong."

Well, AOL Time Warner is having financial difficulties at the moment but I think they can still afford to pay their engineers!

Also, a lot of volunteer Mozilla contributors get employed Netscape eventually. It benefits everyone: the volunteers get paid to do something they love and Netscape gets employees that they know have the skill and commitment required for the job.
