VIRTUAL FIRESIDE CHAT
Should Mozilla develop tools to help the world learn HTML5?
Join an online interactive “fireside chat” with education tech expert Audrey Watters and Mozilla to discuss. Audrey will share results of her recent research project for Mozilla, and look for your feedback and ideas. What’s the best way for Mozilla to help teach “web building” to anyone?

Status Updates By Team (*non-voice* updates)
- wiki.mozilla.org was migrated by solarce and cturra, to our phx1 data center last week, with no downtime and 1.25 hours of read-only mode.
- Thanks to jason, getpersonas.mozilla.com moved to our new scl3 data center on Saturday. This leaves one last website to move in our sjc1 exodus: developer.mozilla.org
- Beefed up our generic webhosting cluster in phx1 which should add speed to some sites hosted there such as wikimo, blogmo, getfirebug, firefoxflicks, mozillians, qmo, and tbpl, just to name a few.
- a few of our team attended Asterisk training this week. Though vidyo has become a popular option for communications, we still have quite a system of office and remote phones and conferencing to support.
- More servers moved out of our sjc1 data center last week. 3 more weeks to go in this migration!
