Mozilla Communities

Speaker Location: Surman / Mitchell - Berlin

  • A month back, we assembled a tiger team on the community goal.
    • Mark Surman, Mitchell, Mary Ellen Muckerman, David Boswell, Brian King, Michelle Thorne, Kristin Baird
    • Working with community teams from across Mozilla
  • Our first action is to pilot the idea of "contribution challenges" to tie the volunteer community to new initiatives that aim to have immediate term impact on topline goals.
  • Over this past weekend, the team worked with the reps at RemoCamp this weekend to iterate and advance the challenges and define volunteer community ownership.
  • Working with the business owner for each goal, these are the challenges that we have prioritized to do between now and the end of the year:
  • Firefox : Firefox 10 and Growth
    • Define a number of initiatives that promote Firefox growth, that we can test during the Firefox 10 campaign. These are a combination of promotions based around events, product features, and so on. The ultimate goal is drive downloads.
  • FXOS Local Presence:
    • Produce a large volume of high quality hyper-local content for FXOS users in India and Mexico, in a very short time frame, and in parallel, train Mozillians to become skilled evangelists and developer mentors to ensure long-term sustained support and mentorship for local developers creating hyper-local content for FXOS
  • FXOS in market Communications:
    • Enable our local communities to be the ongoing voice of FFOS / mozilla in their locales through a range of communications channels, as appropriate in their locals.
  • FXOS + Webmaker:
    • Training and user surveys that help us understand ways that 'user generated apps' can solve problems for the next billion web users.
    • Will actively play a role in shipping Mobile Webmaker (aka Appmaker) through user testing at Maker Parties and conduct interviews with feature phone users to understand the problems they want to solve.
  • Tiles:
    • Define a system to generate content for regional community tiles in 20 launch markets for October 15 and put an ongoing structure in place for regional communities to own the content schedule for regional community tiles.
