Inviting Conversation

March 28th, 2016

I feel a strong need for more conversations with people who care about the Open Internet, Mozilla and Mozilla’s mission.  I’ve noticed that my blog has become pretty “official.”  By this I mean most of the posts are more one way and don’t invite conversation the way I’d like.

I’m going to try returning to blog posts that are  more about topics in process, and see if this helps spark good conversations about what we want to see happen and the decisions we want to make going forward.

I’ll tag these posts as “thought process” to be very clear they aren’t intended as decisions or announcements.  We’ll moderate comments on these posts.  Hopefully after-the-fact if possible but if we see too much spam or flame-throwing or trolling we’ll change that plan.

    I like the idea of going back to old school blogging, that could lead to more friendly, inspiring, and personal conversations. Blogging is about sharing 🙂

    Not many comments here, yet. All stuck in moderation?

    I think this is great! Actually I think blogs are a pretty good medium: your blog already reaches Planet Mozilla, and has a commenting facility. To optimize, maybe you can collect responses to comments into new blog posts, so that it’s easier to follow along asynchronously.

    Looking forward to reading more about what’s on your mind, and hopefully participating in ensuing discussion.

    This is also the same challenge that Mozillians globally (specifically Africa) face. Finding that one effective platform to hold meaningful conversations. We hope this be that conversation starter.
