The meeting is streamed in a 4:3 format in order to allow for split screen. If your slides are 16:9 “widescreen” format, please indicate in the “Sharing” column below.

Friends of Mozilla

Big thanks to the 380,000 people from over 200 countries and territories who donated to the year-end fundraising campaign. At an average gift of about $9 USD they invested a total of more than $3.9 million to support Mozilla’s mission. Amazing!

The Mozilla Open Source Support evaluation committee (Benjamin Kerensa, Laura Thomson, Doug Turner, Stormy Peters, Mike Shaver, Rich Bowen and Tony Wasserman), who worked very hard to evaluate the proposals so we could agree the first round of awards in time for the announcement in Orlando. (It’s been a while, but we haven’t had a live meeting since then.)

All of the Mozilla community for the contributions they have made in 2015.

Everybody who helped ship things to and from Mozlando. THANK YOU!!

Upcoming Events

Optimizing for Uncertainty: Deciding and Moving Quickly

The web is increasingly complex and dynamic. In the natural realm, ‘complex adaptive systems’ allow for flux and change in tumultuous environments. Our December speaker will draw on these models to illustrate how modern organizations can decide and move quickly.

Mike will share how leading tech and product organizations are not simply adapting to increased change, but innovating and thriving in these dynamic environments by:

    • operating around networks vs hierarchies
    • distributing authority
    • processing information effectively
    • embracing structured and facilitated methods for collecting feedback and gaining consent on group action.
  • Speaker: Mike Arauz is a Founding Member and Acting President at August, a New York based consulting firm that builds high-performing teams for the world’s most meaningful missions. Previously, Mike was a Partner at Undercurrent, where he worked with leaders of global companies to transform how their organizations work and thrive in the 21st century, including GE, Pearson, and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Mike is also a co-author of the Responsive.org manifesto and a leading contributor to the global self-management and future of work movement.

6pm UK / 5pm UTC / 10am PT

  • Topic: “Privacy for Normal People”

Mozilla cares deeply about user control. But designing products that protect users is not always obvious. Sometimes products give the illusion of control and security while in reality offer little or none – a practice security expert Bruce Schneier calls “security theatre.” On the web, icons or other elements of design may assure users while not accurately reflecting the true status of the users’ privacy. Ultimately this risks eroding user trust.

Our speaker, an experienced product designer, will share findings of work she did in financial services to help us better design our products to accurately reflect a users’ status and options on the web, building increased confidence and trust.

  • Speaker:

Kat Matfield is a digital product and service designer. She’s worked with start-ups and large corporates to help make innovative new digital services or improve existing ones. In 2014, she spent most of the year researching and designing a new privacy product targeted at normal internet users. She’s fascinated by all the areas of life in which people believe strange things and behave irrationally – and there’s few better examples of this than privacy.

  • Host: James Graham
