At Mozilla, we are united by a firm sense of the opportunity, participation and empowerment that the open internet provides — but we think there’s a need to refine our vision and find new relevance.
Initiated by Mitchell Baker, we’ve started to revisit the historical open architecture and design features of the internet to figure out whether these can help us untangle and address today’s challenges in a positive, constructive manner.
That said, we’re also wondering whether and in which ways the idea of an open internet resonates beyond us.
We’d love to hear from you: What are you passionate about or concerned with, you as a consumer, as an investor, a business person, technologist, activist, decision-maker, interested citizen? When you think about the future of the web that leaves you feeling…? Who do you think is most responsible for making the internet a positive and safe place to be?
Until May 14, we will be soliciting feedback on these questions and our early assumptions and we really want to hear from you: the more perspectives and ideas you share with us, the better we’ll be able to figure out how to build the products, promote the change, and advocate for the ideas that benefit us all.
We invite you to fill out this broad-based survey to help us gain perspective and better understand your concerns and hopes for the future of the web.
Translations into French, German, Portuguese, Spanish will be available soon as well.
And we intend to share back what we learn. In the second half of the year, we will consolidate the feedback and insights we receive to refine our vision and decide on next steps. Whatever we decide, we’ll keep you posted.
