Daniel Glazman Starting Company to Develop Composer

Thursday September 18th, 2003

Ex-Netscape employee Daniel Glazman has announced that he is starting a company to continue the development of Composer, the Mozilla Web page editor. In a Glazblog posting that also covers meals with ex-colleagues and the availability of nose drops, Daniel outlines his new venture: "I am now in the process of starting my own company here in France to continue working on Composer. This company will develop software solutions for the World Wide Web and offer a variety of services around web underlying technologies and open-source tools. I think we will even become W3C member... Wish me good luck!"

Daniel has worked on the Editor portion of the Mozilla codebase for several years and was employed by Netscape Communications Corporation from November 2000 until July 2003. Earlier this year, he announced his intention to continue maintaining Composer, which will eventually become a standalone application like Mozilla Firebird and Mozilla Thunderbird.

Are you offering to be an investor? If not, then why would anyone be willing to layout a realistic business plan for you? As you point out - a good business plan is worth real $$$. Let it be enough that Daniel is willing to pursue the opportunity. He may not succeed (although there is a good chance he can) but at least he is making an effort. More power to him and I hope he spends his time developing his business plan and pursuing opportunities rather than responding to random strangers on a website asking to see detailed business plans for which they have no use.
