Interview: Mozilla’s Asa Dotzler

“Asa Dotzler has been there from the beginning. As Mozilla’s director of community development, he’s had a hand in birthing some of the web’s most successful open-source software projects, most notably the Mozilla and Firefox web browsers. Now, with Mozilla getting ready to celebrate its tenth anniversary on Monday and with the June release of Firefox 3 fast approaching, Dotzler agreed to sit down with and share how his outsider’s eye has helped shape Mozilla’s path. He tells us not only why Netscape failed, but why Mozilla’s first crack at a browser didn’t do much better. He also offers insight into how the Firefox team makes decisions (‘We’ve never been a democracy’, he insists) and why he thinks Firefox 3 will improve the health of the web.”
