This talk

Creating Simple Software in a Geek-driven Culture
 Blake Ross and Asa Dotzler, Mozilla Foundation

at Stanford tomorrow might be of interest to some
in the Bay Area. More information here:

Abstract: Two years ago, the Mozilla Foundation
resembled most other open-source organizations:
it was slow, technology-oriented, and allergic to
consumers. Today, the Mozilla Corporation
develops, distributes and promotes the first
open-source product ever to penetrate the
mainstream: Firefox was downloaded over 100
million times in less than one year. We will look
at how Mozilla transformed its development
practices, economic modelsasically its entire
cultureo change from a technology-focused to a
people-focused organization in such a short time.
