Mozilla Foundation's Mitchell Baker in BBC Interview [news.bbc.co.uk]
Many people in Silicon Valley claim to be high-flyers but as an amateur trapeze artiste Mitchell Baker has a better claim than many.

In her day job Ms Baker is chair of the Mozilla Foundation that most know as the creator of the open source Firefox web browser.

According to some estimates Firefox now has just over 20% of the browser market. Much of the rest, 70%, belongs to Microsoft's Internet Explorer.

Firefox has more success to come and Ms Baker is the first to admit she is a woman with her eyes fixed on the road ahead.
But she criticised those companies who pay lip service to the idea of openness and place limits on how far the sharing of knowledge goes. "It's spreading but there are many degrees of open," she said.
