3 Min Video of the Mozilla Story

January 4th, 2012

Mozilla is so much more than Firefox.  Mozilla is an idea, a mission, implemented through products, the market and people.  This video does a nice job of explaining how all this fits together.

    This video is awesome, but if we will crop the last few seconds (the donation message) it could be a general purpose video we can stick anywhere in order to introduce The Mozilla Project to new people.

    @Tomer I think the donation message is in its right place. New people should learn that Mozilla is a public benefit, non-profit, community org. that relies on public support to get its community initiatives under way and make the web better.

    This is the side of Mozilla that people have no idea about. I strongly believe that the more people know about Mozilla’s mission the more people will use Firefox, Thunderbird etc.

    That was a good video. It was less pretentious than the Mozilla Manifesto, “We are Mozilla Firefox” video it replaced.

    It would be great if Mozilla could do great things out side of the browser. I’d lay odds that most of those other non-browser projects will fail though. For consumers they don’t seem to fill a real need. In some cases they appear to require adoption before becoming useful.

    I was going to share this around, but I really think the donation request sets the wrong tone, so I can’t. (It’s like people getting so sick of ads that they succumb to “banner blindness” and web designers have to be warned to never make any important UI element have the same shape as an ad)

    However, if it gets changed to something like “Donate, code, or beta test”, then I’ll be one of the first to spread it far and wide.
