Over the past two years, I’ve given talks on many Mozilla topics. How a massive global community can (and did) make the web better. Threats and challenges ahead for the internet. The importance of ‘the people formerly known as users‘ in keeping the web open (aka Drumbeat). Earlier this summer, I had the chance to pull all these threads together in a talk called How the Web Was Won.
This is the most comprehensive talk I’ve given on Mozilla themes. It owes a great deal to slides and ideas I’ve borrowed from Beltzner, Blizzard, Mitchell, Lilly, Hanson and many others. In that regard, it’s a ‘best of’ talk. Not my best presentation (very long), but hopefully many good bits for other people to borrow and re-purpose.
Many thanks to the USI conference in Paris for inviting me to do this talk. It was a huge amount of fun.
