Having an agenda

It’s been some time since I’ve blogged about the Summit.  That’s not to say I haven’t been working hard on it, because I have, just not in the same way I was at the beginning.  Several weeks back, around the time I posted about boxes, a ton more people got involved.  It was wholly necessary and glorious and crazy all at once and caused me to take a needed step back.

But I’m back.  Today makes a significant milestone in the Summit planning process – the official unveiling of the long anticipated agenda (will be live shortly).  It’s creation has been an amazing process to witness (I only played a small role in it’s creation) and an unbelievable amount of work, coordination, communication, back-and-forths, changes, iterations, versions, Google Documents, etherpads, meetings (virtual and live), and even a few tears.  What’s perhaps most remarkable about it is that it appears quite simple.  I think that’s the magic of this whole thing really.

If you’re curious about the process and want to read more, Lukas Blakk has been part of this evolution from the beginning and has written two amazing blog posts her experience. Together, her posts offer a great perspective on the journey to this agenda.

And with that I invite you to take a look.  You can find the Summit agenda (live at 6:00pm PDT) at  Click on your Summit city and then on the agenda tab at the top. It is in .pdf format for now and will be moved to HTML shortly (prior to the event.)

If you have any questions at all, please review first the FAQ posted to the wiki here: If you don’t see your question, please contact us on IRC at #MozSummit.

Talk will you all soon.  Mardi
