From a community perspective, this gives us a physical home where we can lay a foundation and grow further. We’ve grown this year from 4 active members to about 15, and while we are spread out across the country it is useful to have a place where people can drop in any time to work. It is also great for events. The desk space is small, but if we grow locally and more people come in to work, I see that as a good problem to have and we’ll scale up.

Nordic Tour Story

In a previous post I talked about how we were in full swing on a community building tour in the European Nordic countries. Here is the full story of what happened. If you can’t see the embedded slide show in this post, you can find the story over on Storify.

How does this format (Storify) work for you? Would you like to see more stories like this about Mozilla events? Are there any other sharing tools you would recommend?

Scandanavia Tour

Jeff Beatty, Axel Hecht, and I are on a mini-Scandinavia tour / road-trip with the goals of strengthening our localization teams there and general community building. Jeff’s first stop was Reykjavik for a MozCafe, Axel and I joined him in Copenhagen for a Scandinavia Meetup, and now we are in Gothenburg. More on those stops soon. In the meantime, watch for us in Oslo and Stockholm and spread the word to your network in and around those cities to come along. Both events are public.

This time I got great support from Mozilla Rep Selim Sumlu and we had a stand to show off some Firefox OS demo devices. I also had the opportunity to speak on a panel at a brief afternoon session at Bogazici University. One of the main reasons of the trip was community building, as Mozilla Turkey has been suffering in that regard.
