Hello World, Content Services Has Arrived

Back in November, Mark Surman had a great quote on our Mozilla blog:

“We’re a global community gathered around the idea that the Web shouldn’t be closed off from everyone. We believe the Web must be an open, shared resource available to all. We roll up our sleeves and get down to the business of making. If the Web needs a new piece of technology, we build it. If the world needs to understand the Web, we teach it. “

We build it, we teach it, and we work hard to make sure the Web is a shared resource available to all.  This is the mission that motivates us to come to work each day and volunteer our time and resources.

Sustainability is something we’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about especially as it pertains to continuing to build, teach and share our products and services such as Firefox.  We recognize that the majority of our revenue comes from our search partnerships and we would like to continue our growth to keep up with the evolution of the Web, and to do this, will take some additional resource in the form of revenue.

We have hired and spun up a Content Services team in the Mozilla Corporation that is working  to identify areas of additional value we can create for our users.  We are then looking to hand-pick partners that are content owners, creators, or curators to help us bring additional value into the project.

Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll be updating this blog with more information.  We’re excited about the ways we can help drive additional enhancements through content partnerships.  I’ll have more information on our plans and how to get involved soon, and in the meantime you can get in direct contact with me here or @dherman76 on Twitter.

    I would rather pay you a subscription fee or go elsewhere rather than be forced to endure more garbage advertising.

    Personally I find I avoid buying from advertisers that I am fed up with. I am willing to spend more money just to buy from a company that has not forced me to put up with their constant bombardment of ads. Businesses that I have purchased from in the past slam me with targeted ads will never see a dime of my money again. This advertising has become predatory and out of control and now you join the pack to subject users to more aggravation.

    How sad.
