The concept is pretty simple: Enable nannies to become Webmaker coaches to their wards.

The over-arching goal is to get their wards interested and motivated about Webmaking.

Roundtable

Do you have a question about a Mozilla Project or initiative? Let us know by Friday- we'll do our best to get you an answer.

Please note that we may not always be able to get to every item on this list, but we will try!

Who are you? Area of question Question
What's your name? What do you work on? Is your question about policy, a product, a Foundation initiative, etc. What would you like to know?
David Weir and a contributor Summit question. Were can we see pictures from the summit if you were not there?
Mary Trobley Harvey Anderson will address We have noticed a lack of diversity in leadership positions which was in stark contrast to the makeup of Mozillians on the whole. We would like to know if this is important to leadership, and if so in what ways? What plans can we make to address it? We need effort from across the organization to address it effectively.

Welcome!

Let's say hello to some new Mozillians!

IT

120 seconds with IT (normally 60 seconds, but it's been two weeks ;) )

  • We were involved with some last-minute summit help to make sure things ran more smoothly:
    • The database team helped by rolling out data updates to mozillians.org so that all the features of the summit.mozilla.org webapp worked for everyone.
    • Guillermo Huerta from the End User Serivces group performed an epic toronto -> mountian view -> brussels weekend journey so that we could stream talks via airmo in Brussels.
    • We performed an upgrade to etherpad so that complex character sets no longer crash the application. This means that etherpad was more stable during the summit and will be from here on out.
  • During our regular 6 week maintenance window (pushed out by one week because of the summit), we performed bugzilla upgrades to move Tracking Flags from custom fields to the new style table structure.
  • We completed the migration of external DNS hosting for mozilla.org to Akamai, our highly available redundant third party provider.
  • Our outside number for the new Paris office is now online (the advertised phone number for directly calling that office works now, and it speaks French) (+33 184 88 37 37)
  • Our outside number for the Portland office is now online (+1 971 544-8000)
  • Moved the remaining Mountain View phone lines from Telepacific to Level 3, which involved a heroic last minute effort by Mike Poessy and Henri Langi to make sure the fax machine continued to work. This removed our last dependence on "traditional" phone lines in Mountain View, everything is now VoIP.
  • The "clapclap" application that controls the lights in Mountain View got fixed so you can actually hear the responses again.
