AMO in 2009

Tomorrow, the AMO team will be presenting our 2009 plan. It’s something that we’ve spent a lot of time thinking about and it’s time we shared with the community that has made us who we are today.

Come to air.mozilla.com tomorrow at 12:30 PM PST and watch it live.  You’ll also be able to ask questions live via the website.

AMO 2009

View more presentations or upload your own.

In a nutshell, our thesis is that AMO is an incubator for innovation, and our goal is to help developers on our platforms succeed. We can provide the audience, support, and data that can help users and developers get the best possible experience.

We have the technology, we can rebuild AMO.

7 Things You May (Or May Not) Know About Me

Rey, our stalwart AMO Community Mobilizer, has managed to rope me into this– so here goes.

  1. I won the sixth grade spelling bee and was carried on the shoulders of my classmates.  It’s all been downhill since then.
  2. I got the PM job at Yahoo! Answers because I was the #1 user on the site during our internal alpha, and my management (wisely) figured that my hobby would better serve them if it was my official job.
  3. My father,  brother, and sister-in-law are all doctors.  I was also pre-med in undergrad but after a couple crappy years of mediocre grades, I realized it wasn’t in the cards for me.
  4. My first computer was an Atari 400, and I secretly wanted a Coleco Adam.  Fortunately my parents, in a surprising bit of technological savvy, decided to get me an Apple IIc instead.
  5. I live the life I wanted when I was 12 years old.  I live in a futuristic house, married to a person much cooler than I am, have pets, and play lots of video games.
  6. My wife attended Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, MI.  I tagged along and worked at Ford for 2 years.  I love cars, but hated working in the auto industry.
  7. If I wasn’t doing product management right now, I think I’d like being a general contractor.  I like making things better.

And Rey, I’m your Boss In Name Only.  Nobody tells Rey Bango what to do.  Nobody.
