Oh, oh... no update for a while. Let me explain...
First of all - and I haven't done this on this particular list: Welcome
Diane! Since about two weeks Diane Bisgeier is our new Program Manager
for WebFWD - and let me tell you, she rocks! In those short two weeks
(with the last week being the Mozilla All-Hands) she already established
both weekly check-ins and brown bags for the teams, managed to speak to
all the teams and get a pulse-check on what they need, works on an
improved website and video, established many backend processes... the
list goes on. As we say here at Mozilla: Splendid (splendid is the new
awesome in case you're wondering).
Then - last week and the coming week I am traveling through Europe to
establish WebFWD here. I kicked the trip off with a keynote presentation
at Emerce eDay, the largest Internet conference in the Benelux, then met
Wirtschaftswoche (Germany's Business Week) for an in-depth interview in
Cologne and will meet more than 10 leading publications in Germany,
France and the UK next week. We will keep you posted on the outcome - so
far the feedback is amazing.
In case you're interested - this was my keynote presentation for eDay:
Next for us is: Diane is working on revamping (and simplifying) our
website and all the marketing materials, Pascal in the meantime will
fire up the European press about WebFWD. And in parallel we're looking
at a couple of teams as potential candidates for the program.
More from us soon - as usual, if you have questions, don't hesitate to
ping us. And if you can think of anything which might be helpful - ping
us! We greatly appreciate your support.
