Once a Mozillian …

It is with a bit of sadness and a lot of excitement that today is my last day working for Mozilla — I start on Monday at Greenpeace’s Digital Mobilisation Lab, with a specific focus on climate campaigns around the world.

I’ve had a wonderful time at Mozilla. I’ve gotten to work with some exceptional people while making the world a better place, and I’m extremely proud of how far we’ve come in my corner of things since I arrived (23x email list, 4x donations, thousands involved in Webmaker, millions in SOPA/PIPA/ITU/PRISM, and more). Thanks so much to everyone who made it possible!

And I’m very excited to start at Greenpeace. I’ve long had a nagging feeling that what I should really be doing is working on climate change — it’s such an urgent issue, and there are so many bad actors trying to directly stop any progress in fighting it, that I feel it’s important to do what I can with as much time as I can. And I love a good fight.

So, more to come on that front.

But they say “Once a Mozillian, always a Mozillian” for a reason — I’ve every intention of remaining involved in the fight to keep the web open, secure, and hackable. It’s something we all need.

    It’s a pleasure to see someone leaving Mozilla for an equally (or more!) worthy cause. As opposed to, say, Facebook. Good luck.

    You worked on PRISM? 😉
