I’m in the bay area for 24 hours, just long enough to meet the folks at mozilla headquarters, have a few meetings, and participate in what should be an interesting new experience: a live interview with Mitchell Baker and Asa Dotzler on Air Mozilla, mozilla’s internet video outlet. In the future, I’ll try and make my visits longer and mention them earlier, so that I can schedule a broader range of conversations, be they in offices, homes, or organic fair trade coffee shops! It’s clear from the state of my inboxen* and the comments on this blog and Mitchell’s that a lot of people have opinions and ideas to contribute, ranging from perspectives on the problems to possible solutions to possible business relationships to employment discussions. In the first few hours, I’ve heard from friends old and new from as far away from home as China, Singapore and even Redmond! This is going to be a fascinating adventure.
*: yes, that’s an old vax joke which the kids won’t get, but I’m tired and punchy, and I get to make 2 email jokes a month now.
