<a name="david"></a>
<p><b>David Boswell</b>

<p>David has been involved in the Mozilla community for over 3 years. He
started the Mozilla development effort at Alphanumerica and set up the
first two Mozilla Developer Meetings.

<p>At Alphanumerica David worked with Pete Collins on a number of Mozilla
applications including Aphrodite, Total Recall and Chameleon.  Pete and
David also founded mozdev.org, a site offering free hosting for Mozilla
applications.  There are currently over 70 development projects hosted on
the site.

<p>David has also written a number of articles about Mozilla including
'Getting Your Work Into Mozilla' and a series of articles discussing how
to use Mozilla technologies to create a Pacman-like video game.  He is
currently working for CollabNet on a number of other open source projects.


<a name="brian"></a>
<p><b>Brian King</b>

<p>Brian has been hacking on Mozilla and related projects since early 1999. 
It began with a European funded project called Fabula to create software 
for children with the aim of learning minority languages like Basque, Catalan, 
Frisian, Irish, Welsh. This was built using Mozilla. 
Interest bloomed and he started contributing to the Mozilla Editor, 
and exploring the rest of the vast body of code. He moved on to work at 
ActiveState where he was heavily involved in the Komodo project, 
a scripting language IDE that uses the Mozilla application framework.

<p>Previously, Brian spent his time as a C++ applications developer, 
interspersed with some Perl development and XML consultancy. 
His technical interests include observing and participating in the 
re-shaping of the web environment brought about by XML. 
Other languages he dabbles in are PHP, Python, and JavaScript.


<a name="ian"></a>
<p><b>Ian Oeschger</b>

<p>Ian Oeschger is Senior Principal Writer at Netscape Communications,
where mozilla.org was started over three years ago. His abiding interest
in language is the basis for some of his more recent infatuations with
Python, XML, web application development, and linguistics.

<p>He maintains a number of the XPFE documents on mozilla.org, including
the XUL and DOM References, has published several articles about XML and
mozilla application development for O'Reilly, and also wrote the themes
documentation for Netscape, the XPInstall API Reference, and others.

<p>Before getting involved with Mozilla and Netscape, he worked at
Oceania, a startup doing XML-based electronic medical records and charting
software, owned and ran a small bookstore with his wife, and had more time
to write fiction, which he still does when he can.


<a name="pete"></a>
<p><b>Pete Collins</b>

<p>Pete got involved with the Mozilla project in April 99 as a contributor
to the editor module. He was also the first external developer to start
documenting xul. His initial efforts were a remote, web enabled script
editor and a community driven rewrite of the existing Mozilla UI. A
project later named Aphrodite.

<p>In January 2000, he joined with David Boswell and the Alphanumerica
team.  Together they evangelized Mozilla as a viable application platform
through the many projects they created and Mozilla developer meetings they
organized.

<p>Currently a software engineer employed by WorldGate, Pete is working on customizing
Mozilla for their TV Internet Client Software. He is the co-founder of mozdev.org
a site dedicated to Mozilla based projects. He is a regular Mozilla comitter and 
owner of various Mozdev projects including jslib and Chameleon.


<a name="eric"></a>
<p><b>Eric Murphy</b>

<p>Eric has been doing Mozilla development since Spring 2000, starting off
with an instant-messenger client called Jabberzilla. He enjoys exploring
opportunities of Jabber and Mozilla working together with new
implementations, such as a collaborative whiteboard and real-time web
content demonstrations.

<p>This year, Eric is looking forward to joining the workforce with a new
Computer Science degree from the University of Northern Iowa. Working on
Mozilla projects has been a great resume-builder for him, and will always
be an important part of his life to reflect on.
