“On February 4th, 2014 we will officially “unveil” the Mozilla monument that has been installed just outside our San Francisco space. This sculpture was created to celebrate our global community and demonstrate the power of Mozilla to inspire people round the world to create a better, open Web.
We introduced this project to most of you at the Summit last October but it has been in the works for over a year. The journey from initial idea, through city-permitting, construction, and ultimately to today, has been a memorable one so we put together a behind-the-scenes that can be seen here https://air.mozilla.org/monument/
And while the amount of steel, gallons of paint, and number of hours it took to print the 4,500+ names of our contributors is fascinating, the real story, and the one that matters most, is what the structure represents:
“These are the educators, technologists, thinkers and builders, past and present, who help us keep the Internet alive and freely accessible — a global community working to empower people to be informed contributors and creators of the Web.” ” – Mardi Douglass, Internal Communications at Mozilla
Referring to the quote above, without further ado, we would like to announce that we are also a part in the making of this monument through our great members who are also contributors that have made their marks with the names engraved on the monument!
Pictures of our engraved members’ name can be found at https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.543899049034522.1073741829.181675451923552.
At the time of this writing, there is a campaign going on in celebrating official Mozilla communities worldwide on social media for 1 day (February 4th, 2014) – specifically, on Twitter and Facebook, and expected to be spearheaded on Instagram and many more with the hash-tag “#IAmAMozillian” where members of communities talking about themselves and experiences of contributing to Mozilla which indirectly to the betterment of the web whereby in one sentence: “Doing good is part of our code”!
There is also a watchable video on Youtube highlighting on Behind The Scenes of the Monument filmed in San Francisco at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5iCSkOsHik.
To fellow Malaysians out there who are using Mozilla Firefox as their preferred browser, or Mozilla Thunderbird as their preferred e-mail client, or any relevant software and platforms of Mozilla, do tweet to us at @MozillaMY about your thoughts regarding all of those mentioned which are relevant with your daily life.
Let’s celebrate this achievement with us, and from all of us – the community, we would like to say thank you so much to all of you for the tremendous supports throughout those times since the beginning of time! We are looking forward to up-bring us – the Malaysians, together with all of you, at another greater level of achievements!
