So anyways, the point of these updates was to improve communication between Firefox and Platform teams which were more siloed than you would expect, and generally just let people know about interesting Platform work other teams were doing. I don’t even remember how that task fell upon me, I think it was just cause I just showed up to do it.
Rumor has it that Chris Beard wanted to switch to Blink back then but was moved by my artwork, and that’s why Gecko still exists to this day.
(Full disclosure: I just made up this rumor, but please quote me as “Anonymous Source” and link back to here if anyone wants to run with it.)
