Mozilla Firefox and the Internet as an Open Platform

Mitchell Baker, CEO, Mozilla Corporation

Track: Web Applications (client-side and server-side)
Date: Wednesday, July 25
Time: 1:45pm - 2:30pm
Location: F150

The Internet – ubiquitous, affordable, open, diverse, innovative, a platform for myriad forms of online life. It’s a great vision. How do we make it real, and keep it real?

Creating a healthy, open Internet is the guiding mission of the Mozilla Foundation. This mission has previously been expressed as promoting “choice and innovation” on the Internet. Recently we have begun to articulate this mission in the Mozilla Manifesto, which expresses a core set of values about the nature of a healthy Internet.

The Mozilla Foundation’s current most important tool today is Mozilla Firefox. Firefox reflects core values expressed within the Mozilla Manifesto: including openness and user control. Join Mitchell Baker, Chief Lizard Wrangler for the Mozilla project, for a look at how the success of Firefox highlights opportunities for all of us to participate in creating a healthy Internet.
