The Mozilla Philippines Community had a kick-off meeting at the Old Spaghetti House at the UP-Ayala TechnoHub in Diliman and we had a productive meeting. Here are some of the items and ideas that were bounced around:

  • Special events – We’re evaluating which special activities to support this year, some of the events that popped up were (the names in the parentheses are the point persons):
    • Y4IT
    • WordCamp
    • Software Freedom Day
    • Joomla Day
    • Ubuntu Release
    • Form Function Class
  • Community-hosted events – We can also events ourselves. Some suggestions include:
    • Mozilla Devcon
    • Mozilla Hack-athon
    • Add-on Contest
    • Cosplay(?)
  • Regular events – We’re targeting a quarterly assembly/get-together this year and the next event is likely to be in G2IX
  • Mozilla Firefox Mascot in the Philippines – Once we have decided to host an event, I’ll try to arrange to borrow the Mozilla Firefox Mascot and bring it here
  • Social Media – We decided to create presences in several popular social media sites. You can be a fan of the Mozilla Philippines Community in Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/mozillaphilippines) and follow in Twitter (@MozillaPH)
    • All bloggers in the community are encouraged to create a link to the Mozilla Philippines Community site
  • Campus Reps – Campus Reps leaders Ren-Ren, Joell, and Jun shared their plans of coordinating with schools. Among them is the Colegio De San Pedro, where they are coordinating w/ Sir Francis
  • Localization – The main consenus is a “Translate-athon” activity where we crowdsource the localization/translation of Firefox in an event
  • Evangelism – It was suggested that a project where we give “Powered by Firefox” stickers/posters to internet cafes that carry Firefox as their main browser. This is very interesting and may need some participation of Mozilla.

Looks like a busy and promising year for the community. :D

    I think an add-on contest is a great idea, firefox add-ons are the main reason why i love Mozilla and Firefox

      I agree entirely.

      It is the incredible addons that separates Firefox from other browsers like Safari and Chrome. I think you should capitalize on it as much as possible.
