I wonder, does anyone have anything they’d like to say about some new work they’re doing, maybe with an open source project?

My secret’s out: I’m now working on Firefox full-time. Short-term, I’ll be investigating and fixing accessibility bugs, like bug 243752 and bug 320383 and bug 315402. Longer term, I am to ”immerse myself in the developer community via IRC, Bugzilla, and blogs” and keep an eye on upcoming features, like Places or the new Windows installer, to ensure that they don’t introduce new accessibility problems that would regress Firefox’s section 508 compliance.
In other words, IBM is paying me to work on Free Software and hang out in chat rooms all day.

Damn, and here I was all proud of myself for figuring this out just by reading wiki transcripts of meetings. Does that mean somebody actually knows what Places is? Because I can’t find it in 11 seconds of searching and reading.
Truth is, I already knew, since I was watching a bug Mark attached a patch to some time before the meeting record went up, I just wanted to do a cuckoo post to get it out of my system :)
Know what Places is? I’ve been dogfooding it what seems like forever, but is really probably only since some time in November, and I barely know an outline. Spam cleaning just took me to my RSS dream post, and Places is still a lot like that vision of Atom. What it is today might be what it is tomorrow, or next Friday (in theory, α1), or it might swerve somewhere else.
But right now, it’s several things:
Now if only we could get Mark to start blogging again, instead of having to chase his (and your) comments through the blogosphere. I must be new here.
I’m listening to Mark in person at Etech, and his wit is just as dry onstage, if not as caustic.
