Blake Ross is a computer genius. After all, he had mastered HTML by the age of 10, and was programming in C++ by the age of 14. He even started to fix problems and bugs in software such as Netscape as a hobby, and before graduating high school, he helped develop Firefox. Now, at 19 he is a science major at Stanford University. He is now most important to the Firefox project.

Ross will work with a team on Firefox version 2.0. He also gets calls from venture capitalists and has a startup with Joe Hewitt, another veteran of Netscape and Firefox. He said he can't talk about their work, but he's also interested in writing movies or children's fiction.
