The Web is entering a new period of transition. Mozilla can’t compete with large vendors such as Google and Apple on their terms, so as always are fighting the good fight their own way. This means moving beyond Firefox into wider Web initiiatives (identity, privacy, Apps) and to some extent outside their comfort zone. Mozilla needs more people with fresh ideas. Mozilla Reps aims to get those people.
The Mozilla Reps program, launched in mid-2011, has the lofty aim of bringing on board thousands of volunteers to officially represent the project and recruit others into the project. The Mozilla project aims to push more and more responsibility out to community members and this talk will discuss the successes and challenges we have had, and our plans for continued momentum.
While it has been a success so far, it has not been without challenges. We want other communities to try and take what we have learned and done and apply it, and we want to continue the discussion to learn from others.
