As I’m halfway into the following week I’m writing these notes quickly rather than losing them completely. I apologize in advance 🙂 Week 5 was spent in Toronto with the Webmaker team and it will be hard for a quick write-up to do this week justice. I got to hack and hang-out with about half… Continue reading Weeknotes 5 – Webmaker Workweek
I gathered up the output from my many discussions with our teams so far, and I’m proposing a plan for shipping a Mozilla Foundation Contributors Dashboard as quickly as we realistically can. I’ll be presenting this next week, and once I’ve had feedback on it, this can be turned into a proper plan of action… Continue reading Week 4 at Mozilla
Seeing how useful it is when my colleagues blog about work, I’m encouraged to do more of the same. So here’s an update from week three at the Mozilla Foundation. I’m caveating this post with a big *this is week three*, as this is a collection of current thoughts rather than any conclusions. The things… Continue reading Week 3: One thing to rule them all

If you don’t know what an Etherpad is,… Continue reading The immediate value of working in the open

Between wrapping up at WWF, preparing for Christmas, house hunting, and finishing off my next study assignment (a screenplay involving time-travel and a bus), I’ve been squeezing in a little bit of… Continue reading As ready as I’m going to be
After almost five years working for the black and white panda, I’ll be moving to the red panda in the new year. Well, kind of… and that’s close enough to the truth to justify the cute pictures in this blog post. As of January, I’ll be working for the Mozilla Foundation as their new Metrics… Continue reading Panda Swap: New year, new job.
I have an hour free this morning, so wanted to quickly write up my thoughts on Mozfest before my memory fades too much. This will be a rough, but f*** it, ship it as they say at Mozfest. I bought a Mozfest ticket in July with next to no expectations and just a little hope… Continue reading My First #Mozfest
