I worked with John for a little over a year, both on the 4.5 product and for all different reasons in mozilla. he was a delight to work with - he was, as we often described him, one of the good guys...one of the guys who knew when he had hit on something and would defend his work and his ideas extremely well.... and just as important, his work and his ideas were of the highest quality. I recently got to know him on a personal level, if only for his appreciation of good fiction and the beauty he found there - he loved sci-fi to no end and became almost overwhelmed with excitement as he told me about some of his favorite books - going into great depth about the beauty of each particular created world. John was truly a unique character in the mozilla world. he will be missed.
