Earlier this week, Michelle Thorne joined Mozilla to lead and roll out key pieces of our events strategy. The first order of business is teeing up the 2011 Mozilla Drumbeat Festival. As the flip charts show, we started work on that earlier today. From there, Michelle will work with user engagement and others to develop a local event organizing toolkit that can be used widely across the Mozilla community.
Before joining Mozilla, Michelle was international project manager and community event guru at Creative Commons. She worked closely with me as program co-chair for the 2010 Drumbeat Festival. I’m thrilled to have her on our team.
