Mozilla China had an Open House Party last Saturday (Sep 1st, 2007).It's the second time I've visited the Mozilla China office. The first time was on May 30th, when the Mozilla office was still being decorated. Now the Mozilla office is finished and it looks great.
The schedule for this Open House Party was:
14:45 ~ 15:10 Sign up
15:10 ~ 15:55 Round table self-introduction;discussion about Firefox usage, community activities, suggestions and ideas
16:00 ~ 16:25 Presentation of Firefox 3 given by Mi Jia , new features and demos
17:05 ~ 17:45 Brainstorming and discussion on following topics:
1. The currently situation of Mozilla and Firefox in China
2. Suggestions and request on the future development of Mozilla and Firefox
3. Community building
4. What kind of help or support you need from Mozilla China
17:45 ~ 18:00 Summary
There were about more 30 people at the party. They were from various companies and universities, including students from Tshinghua, engineers from IT companies and teachers, etc. All of us have one thing in common: We are all Firefoxers !
The Party was hosted by Li Gong. We discussed lots of interesting topics, including: Localization of Firefox, Firefox Testday in universities, IE,Maxthon and Firefox, building the Firefox community, Firefox and Banks, Mozilla Developer Day in China, advertising of Firefox in China, etc. We had a heated discussion and debate. It was a great chance to share ideas and suggestions.
Sun and Mozilla Online are good neighbors. Lots of Sun people joined this party: Dave Lin, Jacky Cao, Rachael Zhang, Serena Xiao. We also saw some familiar faces who used to work at Sun: Jay Yan, Yan Meng, Louie Zhao, Robin Lu. It was nice talking with them.
This is the first Mozilla Online activity, we are looking for more Mozilla activities in future.
