Brendan Eich Leaves his Position as Mozilla CEO, Issues Next Mission Statement

Brendan Eich Leaves his Position as Mozilla CEO

The CEO of Mozilla has left his position for someone more tolerant of human differences. Brendan Eich has vacated his post after the boycott of his firm by a dating site.

Mozilla was in deep trouble a while back. The reason for this was its CEO, Brendan Eich, who had a controversial past. He had given donations to a group that was making efforts to end gay marriage in California. This of course didn’t sit too well with a dating site that started a boycott of Mozilla. Finally, when the pressure became too much, Brendan Eich stepped down from his seat as CEO of Mozilla.

"We didn’t act like you’d expect Mozilla to act. We didn’t move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We’re sorry. We must do better. Brendan Eich has chosen to step down from his role as CEO. He’s made this decision for Mozilla and our community," states Mozilla Chairwoman in official blog.

In its blog, the Mozilla administration apologized for the delay in remaining true to their vision. Since the organization prides itself on being an open forum hence freedom of speech and human rights came first. Therefore, though the CEO had been a vital asset for Mozilla, it was time for him to step down. Eich had also affirmed his intention to leave the organization for the sake of its reputation.

"While painful, the events of the last week show exactly why we need the web. So all of us can engage freely in the tough conversations we need to make the world better. We need to put our focus back on protecting that Web. And doing so in a way that will make you proud to support Mozilla," states Mozilla Chairwoman, Mitchell Baker in company blog.

The departing CEO was a techie who posed several crucial questions that need answers on his website. He also revealed the fact that he was off to greener pastures. Besides, he wanted to spend some time with his family and go on a vacation to relax and unwind after all the stress he had faced since the controversy began. 

"I’ve resigned as CEO and I’m leaving Mozilla to take a rest, take some trips with my family, look at problems from other angles, and see if the “network problem” has a solution that doesn’t require scaling up to hundreds of millions of users and winning their trust while somehow covering costs. That’s a rare, hard thing, which I’m proud to have done with Firefox at Mozilla," states Brendan Eich in his next mission statement

The Executive Chairwoman of Mozilla, Mitchell Baker spoke of how the damage to the company’s image had gone far enough and that now it was in the interests of both Eich and Mozilla to go their separate ways.

"What’s next for Mozilla’s leadership is still being discussed. We want to be open about where we are in deciding the future of the organization and will have more information next week. However, our mission will always be to make the Web more open so that humanity is stronger, more inclusive and more just: that’s what it means to protect the open Web," states Mitchell Baker.

Eich had created the JavaScript programming language. He had been a hard worker and despite his personal views on anything – be it gay marriage or homosexuality – he had never let the organization down. With the issue of Net neutrality being discussed in the European Union, this is a case in point.

 

While there should of course be tolerance of any minority or special interests group, that didn’t mean that reverse discrimination ought to reign. After all, all the citizens on this planet have a right to their views and for each individual there shines a star.
