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.

If you look at his CV on his site, you'll see that he is not exactly a long-haired open source hippy but a very high profile developper who was in charge of huge corporate projects at a global scale over the last 10 years, I wouldn't worry if I were you, this is not a press release but a comment on his web site and my guess is that what will distinguish him from other web IT companies is the word "underlying" :-)
