About MozFest Wranglers & this Wiki

While Mozilla provides a basic structure, resources, and support, the festival is essentially designed and produced by volunteers (called "wranglers)— teams of educators, activists, engineers, artists, and researchers who care about the open web and a healthy internet. Wranglers are a large, diverse group of contributors who collaborate with a small group of Mozilla staff to produce a truly unique event. Throughout an extended 6 to 7 month co-design experience, Wranglers dedicate time to this project on a weekly basis.
