The Two Things about Mozilla

I recently learned about The Two Things question from William Reynolds and wanted to respond with what I’ve learned about the Mozilla Community.

For every subject, there are really only two things you really need to know. Everything else is the application of those two things, or just not important.

The Two Things about Mozilla

With this one I don’t think it could have been put better, so instead I am just going to copy William here:

  1. Create products (such as Firefox, Marketplace, Persona, B2G) that disrupt controlled platforms in order to build a better Web
  2. Develop projects in an open way that allows contributors from all over the world to participate and work towards the mission of keeping the power of the Web in people’s hands [from About Mozilla]

The Two Things about the Mozilla Community

  1. The community is truly global and as such holds great potential, and respect.
  2. With great potential comes a great responsibility to take control of our online lives, to encourage others to make it easier for the masses to do so also, and that is something this community does better than most.
