The Co-pour

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 13:51:22 +0000

I’ve started writing again. I suspect most of you know this already, but for those who don’t: Melissa and I have started writing down our thoughts about management and leadership in tech in a new Medium publication called The Co-pour. We’ve got a few dozen posts up already, covering promotions, firing, and several other areas […]

Home for a Rest

Earlier today, I sent this note to the global mozilla employees list. It was not an easy send button to push. === One of the many, many things Mozilla has taught me over the years is not to bury the lede, so here goes: March 31 will be my last day at Mozilla. 2014 was […]

Hi sweets, Today you turn 5, which makes this the tenth one of these letters I’ve written (A letter, 6 months, 1 year old, 18 months, 2 years old, Two and a Half, 3 years old, Three and a Half, Four, Four and a Half). Every time I write a new one, I read all […]

Four is a big deal. Big girl bed. Big girl bike. You explain this to me, in case I’d missed it. “Soon I will be four, and then I’ll be a teenager.” Eef. I travel a lot these days. Not constantly, probably not even 25% of the time, but enough that I often go a […]

NSID 2013 – Travelogue

Mon, 02 Dec 2013 02:40:59 +0000

To everything there is a season. I’m driving today. The road races by, cold with the oncoming winter. The trees, skeletal without their leaves, look dead. The fields are frozen, shorn of their fruits long ago. Picturesque. But even from within the heat of the car, the sight of it all makes me shiver. The […]

Three and a Half

Tue, 13 Aug 2013 13:27:52 +0000

Well, Lil, I have some news for you: I think you’re an introvert. I don’t want to box you in, and anyhow it’s more of a continuum than a yes/no, but I see things I recognize. The way you play for an hour by yourself without any outside stimulation. The way you stand at the […]

1 year ago, I started a spreadsheet. For 9 months we’d been rewriting Firefox for Android from the ground up, and on May 16, 2012 we released the first beta version to the Android market. I started a spreadsheet to track our star rating. I was nervous. 9 months of rewrite. In web time— in […]

I want to make a point about changing the world, but first we need to talk about the horse head. For Christmas last year I bought my brother a horse head and, while I was at it, picked one up for the office. It felt like the kind of thing that Mozilla Toronto would enjoy. […]

3 Years Old

Hi Lil, You’re three. You can count, you can sound out words with help, and you can sing. Thanks to your mom you’re a big fan of Mary Poppins and thanks to me you’re a big fan of O Brother Where Art Thou but I think you still sing mostly to Raffi and One Direction. […]

Dialogue – NSID 2012

Fade in. She: You stop shaving? He: Yep. She: Like, your mustache? The charity thing? He: No, that’s Movember. Which is awesome. But different. She: So you don’t shave at all? He: Right. She: For a month? He: No Shaving in December. Right. She: Ew. A brief pause. She: Why? Because some guy on the […]
