Feeling so lucky to have attended my first MozCamp this year (in Berlin), a bit overwhelmed (in a good way) and excited about the future. Of course, aside from all the great keynotes, sessions and demos… the best part of these events is always the people you share it with. For me especially, I look forward to the opportunity to meet new people and engage with my colleagues and fellow community members on an entirely different level… pulling ourselves outside various corners of the interwebs (bugzilla, emails, irc, etc…) and having the chance to simply interact in person. I know it sounds weird but in our world it’s easy to go for weeks and months (if not years) without much quality time face to face. So, the experience is simply priceless.
The theme behind MozCamp this year is “many voices, one mozilla”. A powerful theme that actually goes well beyond this particular event, echoing our amazing global community and diversity of voices united as one, with a common mission. It really speaks to who we are and what we stand for. It’s not quite over yet, but I wanted to give a quick shout out to Lee Tom and @mart3ll who captured this theme beautifully in the visual identity for the event: re-energizing the iconic Dino head as a silhouetted symbol for the community, framing it with “many voices” in vibrant colored talk-bubbles. Great work guys!
