Mozilla Labs Announces 2009 Design Challenge: SxSW Edition

Mozilla Labs is calling on its community to share ideas to make it easier to upload files. They’re looking for ideas and mockups to address file uploading issues including the inability to drag-and-drop and upload multiple files, and the need for Flash or server-side hacking to provide any kind of progress indication.

Send in your ideas and join Mozilla at this year’s SxSW for a live discussion of those that catch our attention. See the Mozilla Labs post, excerpted below, for more details:

Here are two ways for you to make a difference:

1. Post an idea anywhere and Tweet its URL to mozconcept any time before the party (see below). The idea can be a mock-up, a prototype, some words, a napkin sketch, a video, anything.

2. Join the Mozilla Labs team at SxSW as we discuss ideas and mock-ups to replace or augment Firefox’s current built-in file uploader. Come take part in the conversation and enjoy some refreshments (read: beer & grub). Join the inventor of Javascript, the lead architect of Ubiquity, the creator of jQuery, and others to discuss how you can prototype your ideas. Expect the usual Firefox swag, some prizes, and merriment.
