Hi friends, sorry for the late response. My office were robbed during the past week and I have been quite busy with all the paperwork
My name is Luis a.k.a as lasr21 I’m a happy Mozillian from that have been around since 2009 .
What is, in your own view, the Mozilla Reps program’s biggest strength and weakness?
Strength: With the time come the experience, the program is now a important part of Mozilla and have a clear process that a huge strength
Weakness: we tend to forget the impact of small events, I got stuck on my head a phrase from Guillermo @deimidis about that we must try to focus on our neighborhood yes it dont be the huge event but we are making step by step a change.
Identify something that is currently not working well in the Mozilla Reps program and which you think could be easy to fix. How would you approach a possible fix?
Swag, it’s my understanding that Mozilla change the vendor and the prices go to the clouds, inform which countries are easy to send swag and which ones the easy answer is to make it local.
What are the top three issues you want the Council to address in case you get elected? Why? How would you approach these issues?
Geographical diversity of reps, if you see the reps map, there are some places where we don’t any presence and a global community we should try to have someone who can spread some MozLove around.
Recognition, despite the fact that every rep around the globe is here for the mission it’s always feel cool to feel recognize.
Documentation, nor more than ever there are several docs,presentations and information around that sometimes get lost and difficult to find.
How do you believe you can support regional community health? - Can this be applied to Reps program too?
The Conflict Resolution Committee was a great initiative, we should continue working and investing in local and regional communities, this totally apply to the reps program. Reps serve this tricky position where you serve as a bridge and connector to potential new members to the community.
What are the specific qualities and skills that you have that you think will help you be an effective Council member?
Experience working with other tech communities, fostering relations and mentoring about how they can grow and have impact.
Organizing international events and helping close to 20 non-mozilla communities It allow me to have some perspective of how things work with different communities.
Which of your contributions from the past 18 months had the biggest impact on the Reps program on a programmatic level?
Been part of the organization team for the first open source contributors summit in Mexico , we gather 500 people who know how they can contribute to 19 different projects including Firefox
Which past achievement as a Rep would you tell your best non-Mozilla friend about?
