David Ascher


I'm an independent consultant on a variety of topics, including strategy (technology, product and organizational). I also code, and scheme.

I was most recently VP of Product for the Mozilla Foundation, where my focus was to make MoFo products as widely adopted as possible, as well as to support the engineering and design needs of MoFo as a whole. I am particularly interested in building systems that let new audiences create on the web by providing access to easy to use and engaging authoring experiences on the web.

Before that, I was Director of Mozilla Labs, building product innovation capacity throughout Mozilla, and before that CEO of Mozilla Messaging, looking over Thunderbird and messaging-related projects (Mozilla Raindrop, Mozilla F1, …).

I've been working with Mozilla technology since late '99, first at ActiveState, then at Mozilla Messaging, which I led until its incorporation within Mozilla Corporation. I've thus seen Mozilla from a variety of perspectives, touching on community, technology, policy, and product.
