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.

John Lilly recently gave a talk at Stanford about Mozilla’s structure and decision-making processes. “[I]t’s about how Mozilla is organized, and how we push decision-making to the edges of any organization we have — it’s really an organization design and behavior talk.” The presentation is an interesting look into the thinking and blended system of chaos and order behind Mozilla. John has posted his slides over on Slideshare, which you can view here: Stanford Presentation on Mozilla.
