"As many of you know, I am no longer a Netscape employee; my position at Netscape was eliminated during the last round of AOL layoffs. Many people have asked what this means for my role with mozilla.org.

First, the focus of my role at mozilla.org will change somewhat. As a Netscape employee, I was in daily contact with a broad range of Netscape management. Some of this interaction was gathering data relating to mozilla.org processes, and some of it was acting as the liaison between Netscape management and mozilla.org. This role as liaison is at an end; it should be performed by a Netscape employee.

I expect to devote more of my time to other activities that are critically important to the Mozilla project. These include working with companies seeking to use Mozilla, serving as spokesperson for mozilla.org, making our project more transparent and accessible to newcomers, driving consensus as to how mozilla.org ought to operate, and pursuing various projects for which I have some particular expertise."
