Interview with CEO and co-founder of Opera

Very interesting things have been coming from Opera lately. Opera Mobile and Opera 9.0 are looking very promising. What else does Opera have planned and how do they see the market? Here's an interview with Jon Tetzchner, CEO and co-founder of Opera, in which he discusses just that and more. The interview covers some of the embedded projects Opera is working on, and talks a bit about open source and what Opera is contributing. It's interesting to note that opera has 170 programmers out of 270 total staff, much larger than I would have expected for both sheer company size and ratio of programmers to others. He also talks about emerging web technologies being developed, like Canvas, that look to make the web “more interesting.” He also talks about the availability of Opera Mini. If you follow Opera or OSS at all, it's definitely worth a look.
