Ok thanks, I watched the first bit up until the video about the new logo. I don’t have 35 min to watch the rest, if there’s something in there that is important to communities could someone recap or share the timestamp?
With regards to our own logo, I am a bit trepidatious based on past experience. Again possibly there is some relevant stuff for this in the branding video, but I thought that branding was designing these logos with a common format in mind for community reuse, so that should be taken into account.
More importantly I think we should have a mission statement before we try to get branding. From past experience, we are a huge region geographically and we need to figure out how to define that common purpose that makes sense for us to organize as a continent, rather than as smaller communities. Branding should be a piece of that strategy, IMO.
I do think that the current political climate in the last few years has really created a great opportunity for us to share Mozilla’s values of privacy and a free protected internet, where in the past it has been harder to get North Americans to care about these things. In the past we have struggled to figure out the “glue” as we don’t have a common language that needs l10n. Perhaps this is finally our time to rally around something!
