Last month, Mitchell Baker posted a list of proposed goals she believes Mozilla should work towards achieving by 2010. Now Mitchell is looking to expand and continue the discussion around these proposed goals, and she has written a blog post outlining the next steps we’ll be taking towards ensuring that the whole Mozilla community has an opportunity to participate in the discussion and provide thoughts and feedback. “Mozilla has many groups of people who work together on particular aspects of Mozilla products, technology, adoption and mission. These groups are a natural setting for discussing the overall goals of the Mozilla project, and what motivates people to contribute. With that in mind, we’re planning a set of discussions to give more people a chance to participate comfortably. Some of these will be face-to-face meetings; others will be online discussions.” For more information about these smaller group discussions and other forums that are available for ongoing feedback, see Mitchell’s blog post.

Last week Mozilla’s marketing team launched a new community-focused marketing challenge called Impact Mozilla. The idea is to further open Mozilla’s marketing process to the community, and see who can come up with the best ideas. This challenge is specifically focused on gathering and developing ideas that will help increase Firefox’s user retention rate — which is to say increasing the number of people who continue using Firefox after downloading and installing it.
“We’re looking for innovative ways to make sure people who download Firefox become regular users. Interested? Start by sending us a summary of your ideas and an oveview of how you and your team will carry them out. If your initial strategy makes the cut, we’ll ask for a complete plan detailing your solution. If your plan is selected as the winner, you’ll have the opportunity to manage a marketing campaign for one of the top brands in the technology world. We’ll give you the resources to enact your solution, plus $3,000 for the winning proposal.” For all the details, including how to get started and where to submit your plans, see the Impact Mozilla website.
