MozCamp Europe Discussions


  • There was a strong desire to explain the open web to a broad public.
    • We want people to understand and embrace the values that underly Mozilla.
  • Also, there is an opportunity to help others teach and evangelize about the open web.
    • This can include formal computer science teaching like at Seneca.
    • But it could also simply about giving school teachers in high school materials that make it possible to offer an open web lesson once in a while.
  • We should be leading they way on policy issues that relate to open standards and the open web.
    • There is a chance to help the EU and governments on the issues where we are expert and that we care about.

    • Get people to express themselves in public about this
  • Firefox + addon bundles e.g an EduFox bundle
    • Contest for the best values based add ons
  • Bringing the internet access to places where it isn't present (eg. Africa)
  • The fact that so many people use Firefox in Europe means that people will listen to us when we talk about values
  • Independence is an important value and message
