History of Mozilla – A Starting Point

September 30th, 2011

At a recent gathering of Mozilla folks I gave an informal talk on the early history of Mozilla. It’s unpolished, it’s low production value (one mike in a big room) and it’s clearly a talk to a live audience that was filmed. Ideally we’d do some editing, add some text for the questions that can’t be heard and maybe try to improve the oddly abrupt ending. But it’s the early part of Mozilla history that isn’t written down and people enjoyed it. So rather than wait I’ll point to what’s available now. It’s about 40 minutes long.

    If there was ever a video that you should be editing and building a storycube around.. This is it. The WebVTT stuff & the popcorn stuff needs to get away from the silly uses they are creating and turn this into a deep media portkey using the hypervideo. It would be like an interactive video outline of why we need an open fight with the Internet. IMHO

    If you are editing it, I think it would be useful to add some images and maybe some videos to make the talk richer. This is indeed something that a lot of people will enjoy to hear.

    Even though I had already heard most of what you said -from a talk Asa gave to us interns :D- I can’t stop saying this is Awesome.
    I started using Firefox back in 2005 but I got engaged in the open source community just in 2008, so there is a LOT of stuff I didn’t know about Mozilla and how it did begin. And I’m sure I’m not the only one :)

    Hello madam
    This was indeed a very good video on the history of mozilla and being its follower right from the beginning, i understand the value of open source more than anything and i was sure that this organization is in the right direction. It’s committed to the web and growing technology and i am very happy to be a part of mozilla community. Madam it would be great if you share some more videos as this was not a complete one. Looking ahead for more interaction on this topic.
