Firebird Database Project Admin Ann Harrison Interviewed
Monday April 21st, 2003
It's been a long and intense week since mozilla.org announced that the Phoenix browser has been renamed Firebird, to the dismay of much of the Firebird database community. In this interview with MozillaZine, Ann Harrison, an administrator of the Firebird database project and a partner in IBPhoenix, gives her thoughts on the dispute.
Erm ... how *exactly* do you translate 'Outlook' as meaning 'an e-mail client'?
I could see how you get from 'Outlook' to a PIM ... but the e-mail bit? Sorry, I just can't make the link.
Word association is created through common use (eg. 'xerox' = to photocopy/a photocopier), so from that perspective Firebird has just as good a chance as any other 'random' branding mark.
