he’s from state college, and he’s here to help

Good evening, Mozilla world. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to Mark Finkle, who joins our intrepid Mozilla Corporation ecosystem team on this very day. Mark’s got a ton of software development experience, he writes very well, and he shares the neurochemical defect that makes me really excited about helping people build their own great stuff on top of our great stuff. You’ll certainly see him and his work on IRC, in the wiki, and on our newsgroups/mailing lists soon, if you haven’t yet had a taste. I’m not saying that the Spiderman theme song was directly inspired by his new role here at Mozilla, but it’s hard to deny that wherever there is an extension development hang-up, you may indeed find him there.

Ours is a daunting community to join, tantamount to learning a new language while riding a unicycle across lava, but I have the utmost confidence that he’ll be up and running in a terrifyingly short time, and before long we’ll be wondering what we did without him. In the meantime, if you should see him wandering the source tree looking slightly dazed, please offer him refreshment — his manager is a bit of a dork, and that can be a serious burden to bear.

    So that’s why I didn’t recognize his irc nick last night :)
