Awesome opportunity mixing mission, impact & business

Nicholas Reville, executive director of one of my favorite non-profit tech companies, the Participatory Culture Foundation, has just posted on their blog that they’re hiring a West Coast business person.

This is a special opportunity, I think. I joined Mozilla 2 years ago when we were just 15 or so folks, and my title was Business Development lead — even though we didn’t really know what it meant. But in the 2 years since then, I’ve been fortunate to be part of something unique & great — the growth of Mozilla.  FWIW, I had only generic business/entrepreneurial background before joining to do BD — but was able to work with Chris Beard, Mitchell Baker and others here to build something of an ecosystem of partners, and to help make our economics more sustainable.

At PCF, there’s a similar type of opportunity — but even more at the ground floor — the opportunity is to figure out open video from the beginning, and to mix the business, open source, and non-profit angles all together.

If you’re interested in making sure that the future of video on the web stays open, I’d encourage you to take a look.
