Linux Inlaws.

This is Linux Inlaws, a series on free and open source software, black humour, the revolution and freedom in general (this includes ideas and software) and generally having fun.

In this episode, Martin and Chris interview Eric Rescorla, the CTO of Firefox at Mozilla. After discussing the weather situation in the Kingdom formerly known as the UK, our two aging heros go right into browsers, programming languages, the Mozilla ecosystem and internet history and future alike. This episode again is not for the faint-hearted as none of the gory details are spared: We learn about Chris' t-shirt situation (and how you can kidnap apparel), why Google is so sucessful, data privacy and Internet monetization. Never mind rendering engines. Plus: more Rust marketing (Rebecca Rumbul: Take note :-).

Excellent interview

What an excellent interview. I'm a big fan of Mozilla and Firefox, and it was fascinating to hear what Eric had to say. Thank you!
