This week the Mozilla Digital Memory Bank podcast features Firefox co-founder, Blake Ross. Ross first came to fame in 2002 after appearing on the cover of Wired Magazine while still a high school student. Ross agreed to meet with CHNM research assistants Ken Albers and Olivia Ryan at a California public library last June for an interview. Listen to the podcast for highlights or visit the Memory Bank for audio and a transcript of the full interview.
Organized by the Center for History and New Media (CHNM) at George Mason University, The Mozilla Digital Memory Bank is a permanent, open, peer-produced digital archive of Mozilla history. With support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the Mozilla Foundation, The Mozilla Digital Memory Bank collects and permanently preserves digital texts, images, audio, video, personal narratives, and oral histories related to Mozilla, its products, and its community of developers, testers, and users. The Mozilla Digital Memory Bank is part of CHNM’s Echo project, which, since 2001, has worked to develop new ways of collecting, preserving, and presenting the history of science, technology, and industry online. Building on CHNM’s earlier work on the September 11 Digital Archive and the Hurricane Digital Memory Bank, the Mozilla Digital Memory Bank aims to create a lasting resource for generations of students, teachers, scholars, and members of the general public interested in the history of the Internet, open source software, and Mozilla.
