More About Mozilla

1. In the medium term, the Eich defenestration may well cripple the organization's capacity for innovation.

In fact I've developed a growing frustration with Firefox and have been reading about other people feeling the same way. Is the Eich affair a symptom of a deteriorating organization?

Afterthought. If Mozilla goes south, the company culture can overlook its own deficiences and blame The Bigots for dropping the product. Win-win for the gaystapo?

Added 20140406. Aggressive groupthink in a culture of innovation? Something will have to give.

There are those who will get malicious pleasure from watching layoffs at Mozilla. I suspect that it's a matter of when, not if.

2. I wouldn't trust Mozilla Chairwoman Mitchell Baker with any issue public, private, or personal.
