Dear friends, mentors & partners,
We're getting so close... Early next week we will announce our first two
WebFWD Fellows: OpenPhoto (http://theopenphotoproject.org/) and CASH
Music (http://cashmusic.org/). Personally I couldn't be happier than
having these two projects in the program. :)
And we've set up a "Friends of WebFWD" program to give some projects we
really like but which don't fit the WebFWD bill 100% a home - stay
tuned, more about this next week.
On the people side we have happy and sad news. Didem, our superstar
intern, will leave us today. Sad news. And Diane Bisgeier, our new
superstar program manager will join us in about 2 weeks. Happy news.
Other than that we could win the wonderful people from Braintree for our
partner program - Braintree provides end-to-end payment solutions (and
doesn't suck!) and will offer their great expertise to our projects if
and when they need payment solutions.
In day-to-day terms we were busy with outreach, getting WebFWD onto a
couple of Mozilla properties, running our second CoffeeFWD event this
Friday, communicating with applicants, setting up infrastructure...
In infrastructure news - we decided to use Yammer for team
communication. Those of you who are mentors will get an invite sometime
early next week. Feel free to join the discussion - it's mostly meant as
a way for us to communicate with the projects (and the projects amongst
themselves) but we would love to see the mentors in this network as well.
Have a great weekend everyone. :)
