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).

I get paid in Kool-Aid. With a bonus rock of crack for every five hotheaded comments I make to the newsgroups or websites. Not that there's a lot of time to enjoy it, what with three hours' sleep a night and getting up at 4am for chanting and beaming psychic hate rays towards Redmond. It's a fine and noble enterprise!

Oh, and the massive social gains from having my name in the credits. When the sxxy deth chyx see my aura of Mozillianity ... hot damn. I tell you, it's a terrible strain using my powers only for good, not evil. Well, for *good* evil, not *evil* evil. You know what I mean.
