Matt Pope posted the job on Ozzie's Twitter account and lists himself on LinkedIn as a co-founder/worker at Cocomo.
The word Cocomo is shorthand for constructive cost model, which is a way to estimate the cost of software development projects. Kirsner asked if it also might be a blend of collaboration and mobility. Ozzie answered that other applicable words include communication, coordination, conversation and coherence.
Ozzie worked at Lotus Development in the early 1980s, but left to start Iris Associates, which created the product later sold as Lotus Notes (Lotus also bought Iris in 1994). Ozzie later formed Groove Networks, a document collaboration company that Microsoft acquired in 2005, leading to Ozzie's rise to Microsoft's chief software architect in place of Bill Gates in 2006.
