Chris Finke (feed) – Christopher Finke is a software engineer who splits his time between building high-traffic websites (like AOL Shopping and Mahalo.com) and developing browser add-ons (like ScribeFire and TwitterBar) to enhance the Web.

Cameron McCormack (feed) – “Previously, I’ve been working on my PhD thesis on “adaptive diagrams” at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. I’ve been involved with the Apache Batik project, a Java SVG toolkit, for a number of years. At the start of October I moved to New Zealand to work out of the Mozilla Auckland office. I’ll be spending half of my time doing web standards work, and the other half engineering work. I’m currently co-chairing the W3C SVG Working Group. I’m also working on Web IDL http://www.w3.org/TR/WebIDL/, which a number of other web-related specifications depend on. I’m in the Platform team, but the exact work I will be doing there is to be determined. :)”

Steve Fink (feed) – Steve Fink works for Mozilla on performance and tools. Before Mozilla, he did performance tuning on a games-over-cable TV channel that had sparkly diamonds, thousands of independent MPEG streams coming out of each Linux server, and lots of bright happy colors. Before that, he was a core engineer at Reactrix Systems, making Linux-based 2d- and 3d-camera driven interactive video projection systems to make small children cry when their parents dragged them away to go home. Along the way, he’s dabbled in the Parrot project, data warehousing, plagiarism detection, rock climbing, and numerous open source projects.
