Summary: We have two things we'd like to do. These can work in tandem or stand alone.

1. We'll be walking the halls with camera in hand informally interviewing Mozilla Staff and community. We'll ask:

    1)what special knowledge can they share that would help others be more successful in the project 
    2)what questions do they want answers to that will help them be more successful. 

We'll get the video and cut it together later for distribution and consumption post-Mozcamp.

2. Conduct a workshop session where contributors will learn more about the Viki project, engage in an activity that will advance the project and tap their talents for future engagement in the Viki project.

How your session furthers the MozCamp Goals ( We're capturing knowledge that will be distributed to ALL Mozillians to empower them to engage their best talents.
