Blogging and Hiring

I’ve been very quiet since joining Mozilla. Too quiet. I’ve been catching my breath and getting up to speed. It’s time, however, to start blogging again. I’ll be blogging here, but I’ll be mirroring the posts on the Humanized blog for a while. Be warned that the new blog has a temporary look, meant to be replaced soon by the awesome work of Naz Hamid. I should also point out that Atul has already begun talking about his experiences at Mozilla on his blog. You can also follow the sundry happenings of Jono and Andrew on their respective blogs.

The open source world is the world’s largest and arguably, the world’s best engineering department. It lacks a comparable design department. One of my goals in coming to Mozilla was to work on bridging this gap between the engineering world and the design world. I’ve only begun to think about the problem, and I hope to begin some conversations about the topic soon. An exciting aspect of working for Mozilla is that almost all of your design work can happen out in the open. There are none of those we-take-your-ideas-and-lock-you-away-from-the-sun policies that many other companies shackle their employees with. I hope to start sharing those design processes as well.

Which brings me to: We are hiring! Mozilla is looking for some top-notch UI/UE/UX/IA/IxD/HCI/TLA people. There are few places in the world where the user-to-employee ratio is roughly 1.2 million to 1. Getting to help shape the future of the web is hard work, but it’s easily worth it. If you are interested, send me an email at azzcsa@mozilla.com.

Aye, Mozilla certainly needs more designers because apparently they couldn’t care less about Firefox’s Flash support! It’s really, really bad and I hope your design-centric perspective will help them notice this. Please, on behalf of all the Flash designers out there, help!

Good luck there and have fun :)

Thanks, Corey. Will try ;) Probably the best way to do something about FF’s Flash support is to file a bug in Buzilla. That really is how things get done over here, even internally.

aza@mozilla.com? Really? That won’t lend itself to confusion, I’m sure :P.

Thanx admins.


Step 1. Download and install the latest development build of Firefox 3.1.
Step 2. Download and install the latest version of the New Tab prototype.


I’m pretty sure that the “Nothing” button isn’t “implicitly a cancel button.” “If the user has globally allowed web sites access to their location at the neighborhood level,” as Aza wrote, hitting “Cancel” would just keep it that way.
