Grow Mozilla

Speaker Location: San Francisco

Last week I talked about how working in the open is one way all of us can help with the goal to increase active contributors by 10x. I’ve come across an interesting statistic about this and wanted to make some specific asks.

The interesting statistic: In the past six months Mozillians created almost 30,000 Google documents and only 2,709 of them were made public.

The specific asks:

  • Spend a minute imagining how effective you would be if you had access to just 10% of your team’s documents
  • Go through the Google Docs you’ve created and change the sharing settings to Public for anything that’s not sensitive
  • Consider using instead of Google Docs the next time you need to create a document

Bonus points: Read these two great posts from Amy Tsay and Doug Belshaw about working in the open.
