Fluffy & Foxkeh’s Return!

March 17th, 2015 | Category: News and Events

By KattT – March 2, 2015

It’s been six months since the return of Fluffy and Foxkeh, MozParis’ resident fluffies. For those who don’t know, the pair disappeared on an unexpected journey back in May. They didn’t even leave a goodbye note.

Months passed and hope of their return began to fade when two gentlemen walked in the door with the two missing foxes! They had found them “…in the street. And because we love Mozilla we thought we’d give them to you!”

We can only imagine where the two traveled and what they saw, perhaps one day they will tell us. Until then we’re just thankful to have them back!

Foxeh & Fluffy back in their milieu naturel.

Black boxes = Mystery. Everyone knows that. This photo is posted with the consent of those pictured.Privacy Day Cake

On January 29th we celebrated Data Privacy Day at our MozSpaces worldwide to raise awareness about the importance of protecting personal information online.  Although Data Privacy Day is nationally observed on January 28th we spent the week hosting various speakers and events.  Nico Sell, the CEO and co-founder of Wickr, spoke to us from SF.  She outlined the risks to our online privacy and shared tips on how to protect ourselves better. Afterwards, we shared privacy day cupcakes as well as good conversation.

MozArt!

August 25th, 2014 | Category: Mozilla Spaces,News and Events
San Francisco’s 7th floor and Mountain View’s 2nd floor received a brand new piece of art this summer. Mozilla’s Rust logo was fabricated using COR-TEN® steel, is 42″ in diameter and given a nice rusty patina.  These pieces weigh about 100 pounds each and are being mounted very carefully by expert art handlers.

This installation is part of a larger art program that was initiated late last year. John Slater, Sean Martell and Barry Munsterteiger on the creative side with Rob Middleton and Pauline Proffett from WPR, formed a team charged with pulling Mozilla’s art assets and photos into one location and selecting pieces to display in our San Francisco and Mountain View offices. Through that process we’ve established a core art program for Mozilla’s offices that includes the option to install MozSpace logo signage in office reception areas, framed Mozilla branded t-shirts in work spaces and conference rooms, along with a wide variety of Mozilla branded art and photos.
What’s next, you ask? First, we’re moving beyond San Francisco and Mountain View to other MozSpaces.  So if you’re a Mozillian outside of California keep your eyes peeled, new art will likely be coming your way! Next, we’re looking to add local flavor and personality to each office where art is concerned:

Global Maker Party Cantina

August 25th, 2014 | Category: Mozilla Spaces,News and Events
On July 15th, Mozilla kicked-off Maker Party, a 2-month global campaign to teach the web, and to promote web literacy, connected learning and digital skills. What is Maker Party? Through thousands of community-run events around the world, Maker Party unites educators, organizations and enthusiastic web users with hands-on learning and making.
To mark the occasion, MozSpaces all over the world hosted a Maker Party-themed Cantina on July 17th. Local staff in each space demoed some cool Maker Party tools and Mozillians came together to do a jig-saw puzzle with a Maker theme! Check out the site for future interest in attending an event, running your own event or sharing an event you are doing.

MTV2

May 27th, 2014 | Category: Mozilla Spaces,News and Events

On March 14th MVers said goodbye to Castro street and, just days later, on March 17th said hello to their new digs on Evelyn Ave! Many teams worked tirelessly to make a smooth transition to the beautiful new space.

The space was designed to meet the needs of the MV Mozillians. On March 13th, 2013 we launched our MV2014 kickoff meeting. Input and feedback was gathered into a comprehensive survey by MK Think Architects. The 50-page survey results led to key findings of what has worked in other MozSpaces and what needs still weren’t being met. What we discovered was a need for quiet workstations, collaboration areas, a micro gym, larger bike room, multiple break areas and outdoor seating. MTV2 has it all. Enjoy the photo gallery!
