As discussed in this week’s Reps Weekly Call (which you can watch on AirMo for all the details), the Mozilla Community can often feel fragmented and people active in one area don’t hear about the good work happening elsewhere and feel isolated from the rest.
Therefore, it would be great to find a communication channel that can make everyone feel more connected and get everyone more informed about what’s happening in the larger community - including even projects and initiatives not driven by the official Mozilla organization but other groups in the community, like e.g. Coqui, WebThings, and others.
One proposal for that which came up in the call would be a regular summary of highlights from the community, similar to the internal “tl;dr” posts here on Discourse, another would be to make some of the Reps Calls into some kind of “Community News” calls where those updates could happen in an audio-visual form.
There may also be other ideas, but we should start somewhere and be willing to experiment to find the right format, esp. fitting also the people who’d be willing to volunteer their time to help out there. If you have additional ideas, please tell us about them!
Konstantina brought up that we should make clear what we really want to achieve and who our target audience is for this, and Francesca offered to set up a meeting where we can brainstorm and discuss the next steps to get something moving there, with interested people from the community, including e.g. also Reps Council members. That said, first it would also be great to get some input here in Discourse.
So, what’s your opinions, who do we want to reach and in which way can we reach them? Do you have a proposal on what we can do there? Would you be willing to help?
