Gunner: Come to #mozfest to get what you need but do it in a way to benefit others.
Gunner: Questions are heroic acts of leadership.
- Speak slow for Localised Experience
- Make your language accessible
- Share the mic
gunner goes over three guidelines for being a better person:
- Honor the clock
- We come with passion. Focus on the listening
- Debate is not fruitful. Respect perspectives

@herahussain Feel free to complain. Encourages North Americans to adopt European manners and bitch about everything. Great conversation starter.
@herahussain Is running a session Building Resources for Women at Risk.
I am not the only one live-blogging. Yipee.
@herahussain Is up next a community manager from Open Corporates is sharing what you should do at #mozfest. Has two ideas.
@msaunby said the great part of #mozfest is getting to talk outside of silos. He catches up with educators, librarians, and developers.
So we built a team, found some funds, and came to #mozfest.
@msaunby We started to talk about what impossible projects we could start. We learned at #mozfest things are not impossible they are difficult.
@msaunby is up from the Lab Rat, Met Office #mozfest
Its Milena, will go back and edit later today.
Sorry taking a break from Periscoping. Blogging and video at the same time was hard. Arm got tired, one handed typing hurt the head.
Melana (hope I am spelling correctly) now works for Amenesty International developing technology to document human rights abuses.
Melana: In our community we did not like the trainer model. It was talking at students, but we did not know how to do it until we came to #mozfest.
melana sp? is up to share her story
we need human networks not technological networks
Dyson: Dont build products for your community. build with your community. going lowercase haard to type and periscope.
we prototype at mozfest. We plant the seeds without knowing how they grow.
Dyson: #mozfest is controlled chaos. It isn”t a place to just build tools but think about your process.
Thought experience: with your device off would you connect better.
Sa Dyson up next.
Surman: Event the web and shape the web in the way you want.
Surman: #mozfest as a platform, is a network, a production engine, and a great way to chart your path.
Surman: We are in a good place with the web even with the threats. I have hope and the amount of hope is increasing.
Surman: We designed#mozfest like the Web should be. Its remixable, interoperable, and most importantly ours.
Amira hands it off Mark Surman. A manual for the magiccarpet ride
Every hand goes up when asked are you a learner.
Two hands go up for the 6th year of #mozfest.
I am the creator and director of my own magic carpet ride.
you determine your own magic at #mozfest
Amira kicks it off trying to get everyone seated. Meanwhile Robert is off lost in cardboard. That is #mozfest spirit. I will be live blogging…sorry no periscoping. Looking for volunteer.
