Mozilla CEO Gary Kovacs has some interesting ideas about optimism and technology.

In this interview with VentureBeat at the South By Southwest Interactive festival in Austin, Kovacs took some time to chat about Mozilla’s next steps into the world of mobile technology: Boot2Gecko, a web-based paradigm that this CEO thinks will frame many important conversations about the way mobile applications and mobile browsers are supposed to work.

We also got to talk about Google’s privacy PR problems and what users should feel entitled to expect, even out of a capitalistic company making proprietary software.

Stay tuned for more video interviews from SXSW.
