Quite excited that I’ve been added to the ranks of Planet Mozilla – a great resource for those who want to be kept up to date on the going ons of the Mozilla project. Thank you Robert…
Since I’ve already been writing about Open Source and Mozilla there are a few posts that Mozilla Planet readers might find interesting. I thought I’d link to a few of them to give people a sense of my background and because some of them might be of interest.
First and most important is a redrafting of the Mozilla Manifesto – I’d be interested in people’s thoughts and feedback. This edit was unsolicited, I know Zak has been working on the manifesto and I thought there might be an appetite for a larger conversation.
Some others posts of interest include:
- a presentation on community management I gave at last year’s FSOSS at Seneca College, and some earlier ramblings that lead to that presentation
- a piece on how the open web is a social movement and how Eric Raymond’s Hackers and Painters The Cathedral and the Bazaar parallels this idea
- a piece on the limits of collaboration in open source projects
- acknowledging that some of our public services have been using an open source model for decades
- an op-ed on why large organizations (like the government) shouldn’t ban access to facebook
- and of course a series of posts on the global distribution of firefox pledges and downloads that were slashdotted (and that Zak kindly linked to)
Okay, so that is quite enough… I’m looking forward to posting more.
