The many faces of John Slater

What would Mozilla be without John Slater? Well, suffice to say it would be a much less exciting place. Let’s face it: John Slater is a creative genius. I know, I’ve said it before, but looking back at 2008, it sure seems worth repeating. I’m talking about the man that brought us invaluable things like the shiny robot, the immaculate mozilla.com redesign, and numerous October 2008 projects.

But wait — there’s more. The following photos show that his personality is as multifaceted as the creative work he spits out for the good of the open web:

John Slater is the only survivor, and he washes up on a tiny island with nothing but some flotsam and jetsam from the aircraft’s cargo. Can he survive in this tropical wasteland? Will he ever return to the woman he loves?

Karma is a funny thing. Just ask John Slater, who’s learning the hard way that when you do something bad, it has a way of coming back and biting you in the ass.

Just think for a few minutes about what John Slater could have in store for us in 2009  — it does make you humble, doesn’t it? Really, only the imagination is the limit… and we all know what that means in John Slater’s case!
