Mozilla Open Policy & Advocacy Blog: Join Mozilla for global teach-ins on Net Neutrality

Mozilla planet - mo, 28/07/2014 - 18:22

(This is a repost from The Webmaker Blog)

At Mozilla, we exist to protect the free and open web. Today, that openness and freedom is under threat.

The open Internet’s founding principle is under attack. Policymakers in the U.S. are considering rules that would erase “Net Neutrality,” the principle that all data on the Internet should be treated equally. If these rule changes go through, many fear it will create a “two-tier” Internet, where monopolies are able to charge huge fees for special “fast lanes” while everyone else gets the slow lane. This would threaten the very openness, level playing field and innovation that make the web great — not only in the U.S., but around the world.

Using the open web to save the open web

This is a crucial moment that will affect the open web’s future. But not enough people know about it or understand what’s at stake. Net Neutrality’s opponents are banking on the fact that Net Neutrality is so “geeky,” complex, and hard to explain that people just won’t care. That’s why Mozilla is inviting you to join us and other Internet Freedom organizations to educate, empower, organize and win.

Local “teach-ins” around the world…

Join the global Mozilla community and our partners to host a series of Internet Freedom “teach-ins” around the world. Beginning Aug 4th, we’re offering free training to help empower local organizers, activists and people like you. Together we’ll share best practices for explaining what Net Neutrality is, why it matters to your local community, and how we can protect it together. Then we’ll help local organizers like you host local events and teach-ins around the world, sharing tools and increasing our impact together.

…plus global action

In addition to increasing awareness of the importance of Net Neutrality, the teach-ins will also allow participants to have an impact by taking immediate action. Imagine hundreds of videos in support of #TeamInternet and Net Neutrality, thousands of letters to the editor, and thousands of new signatures on Mozilla’s petition.

We’ll be joined by partners like reddit, Free Press, Open Media, IMLS / ALA, Media Alliance, Every Library and Engine Advocacy.

Get involved

1) Host an event. Ready to get started? Host a local meet-up or teach-in on Net Neutrality in your community. Our Maker Party event guides and platform make it easy. We even have a special guide for a 1 hour Net Neutrality Maker Party.

2) Get free training and help. Need a little help? We’ll tell you everything you need to know. From free resources and best practices for talking about Net Neutrality to nuts and bolts logistics and organizing. The free and open online training begins Monday, Aug 4th. All are welcome, no experience necessary.You’ll leave the training armed with everything you need to host your own local teach-in. Or just better explain the issue to friends and family.

3) Use our new Net Neutrality toolkit. Our new Net Neutrality teaching kit makes it easy for educators and activists to explain the issue and empower others. We’re gathering lots more resources here.

4) Spread the word. Here are some example tweets you can use:

  • I’m on #TeamInternet! That’s why I’m joining @Mozilla’s global teach-in on Net Neutrality. http://mzl.la/globalteachin #teachtheweb
  • Join @Mozilla’s global teach-in on Net Neutrality. Let’s educate, empower, organize and win. #TeamInternet http://mzl.la/globalteachin #teachtheweb
  • The internet is under attack. Join @Mozilla’s global teach-in to preserve Net Neutrality. #TeamInternet http://mzl.la/globalteachin #teachtheweb

Mitchell Baker: Chris Beard Named CEO of Mozilla

Mozilla planet - mo, 28/07/2014 - 18:07

I am pleased to announce that Chris Beard has been appointed CEO of Mozilla Corp. The Mozilla board has reviewed many internal and external candidates – and no one we met was a better fit.

As you will recall, Chris re-joined Mozilla in April, accepting the role of interim CEO and joining our Board of Directors.

Chris first joined Mozilla in 2004, just before we shipped Firefox 1.0 – and he’s been deeply involved in every aspect of Mozilla ever since. During his many years here, he at various times has had responsibility for almost every part of the business, including product, marketing, innovation, communications, community and user engagement.

Before taking on the interim CEO role, Chris spent close to a year as Executive-in-Residence at the venture capital firm Greylock Partners, gaining a deeper perspective on innovation and entrepreneurship. During his term at Greylock, he remained an Advisor to me in my role as Mozilla’s chair.

Over the years, Chris has led many of Mozilla’s most innovative projects. We have relied on his judgment and advice for nearly a decade. Chris has a clear vision of how to take Mozilla’s mission and turn it into industry-changing products and ideas.

The months since Chris returned in April have been a busy time at Mozilla:
•   We released major updates to Firefox, including a complete redesign, easy customization mode and new services with Firefox Accounts.
•   Firefox OS launched with new operators, including América Móvil, and new devices, like the ZTE Open C and Open II, the Alcatel ONETOUCH Fire C and the Flame (our own reference device).
•   We announced that the Firefox OS ecosystem is expanding to new markets with new partners before the end of the year.
•   We ignited policy discussion on a new path forward with net neutrality through Mozilla’s filing on the subject with the FCC
.
•   In June, we kicked off Maker Party, our annual campaign to teach the culture, mechanics and citizenship of the Web through thousands of community-run events around the world. President Obama announced the news at the first-ever White House Maker Faire.

Today, online life is a combination of desktop, mobile, connected devices, cloud services, big data and social interactions. Mozilla connects all of these in an open system we call the Web – a system that puts individuals in control, offers freedom and flexibility and that is trustworthy and fun.

Mozilla builds products and communities that work to break down closed systems that limit online choice and opportunity. There is a huge need for this work today, as our digital lives become more centralized and controlled by just a few large companies. Toward that end, Mozilla builds products that put the user first, with a focus on openness, innovation and opportunity.

Chris has a keen sense of where Mozilla has been – and where we’re headed. He has unique experience connecting with every constituency that touches our products, including consumers, partners and community members. There’s simply no better person to lead Mozilla as we extend our impact from Firefox on the desktop to the worlds of mobile devices and services.

Chris, welcome back.

Prashish Rajbhandari: For the love of Mozilla: #MozDrive

Mozilla planet - mo, 28/07/2014 - 17:00

Hello Everyone,

I assume many of you must be aware of the recent project that I’ve undertaken. It has already been few weeks since I announced it, but the lazy me had been procrastinating to announce it here. I have also had the opportunity to test the whole idea on a recent volunteering trip to Squaw Valley (more on that later).

On 1st August 2014, I will be embarking on a journey across the lower 48 US States to spread the word and the love about Mozilla.

In 25 days, I will:

- Travel across the lower 48 States and share Mozilla’s story, vision, and their mission with the people I meet along the way.

- Engage in a one-to-one interaction with the locals and document their stories for an epic MozDrive video.

- Share my journey through the help of social media, as I go about making a difference and positive impact in the society.

Read more about the campaign here.

And please follow the entire journey and share the page (Facebook, Twitter) within your community or wherever you can in the social media space. The whole idea is to spread Mozilla love far out wide in the physical as well as digital world.

The entire campaign is mostly sponsored by The Mozilla Foundation (really grateful to them). But, I will be financing my own food and misc during the entire journey. I personally wanted everyone to become a part of this journey in some way. You can financially support the campaign – here!

I need your full support during the entire journey.

Thanks everyone!

 

Here are few pics from my recent #MozDrive test in Wunderlust, Squaw Valley.

Just Browsing: Fastest Growing New Languages on Github are R, Rust and TypeScript (and Swift)

Mozilla planet - mo, 28/07/2014 - 16:36

While researching TypeScript’s popularity I ran across a post by Adam Bard listing the most popular languages on Github (as of August 30, 2013). Adam used the Google BigQuery interface to mine Github’s repository statistics.

What really interested me was not absolute popularity but which languages are gaining adoption. So I decided to use the same approach to measure growth in language popularity, by comparing statistics for two different time periods. I used exactly the same query as Adam and ran it for the first half of 2013 (January 1st through June 30th) and then for the first half of 2014 (more details about the exact methodology at the end of this post).

Results

Based on this analysis, the ten fastest growing languages on Github in the past year are:

At the risk of jeopardizing my (non-existent) reputation as a programming language guru, I’ll admit that several of these are unfamiliar to me. Eliminating languages with less than 1000 repos to weed out the truly obscure ones yields this revised ranking:

We are assuming that growth in Github repository count serves as a proxy for increasing popularity, but it seems unlikely that Pascal, CSS and TeX are experiencing a sudden renaissance. Some proportion of this change is due to increasing use of Github itself, and it seems likely that this effect is more marked for older, more established languages that are only now moving onto Github. If we focus on languages that have started to attract attention more recently, the biggest winners over the past year appear to be R, Rust and TypeScript.

Random thoughts What the hell is R?

The fastest growing newish language is one that was unfamiliar to me. According to Wikipedia, R is “a free software programming language and software environment for statistical computing and graphics.” Most of the developers around the office said they had heard of it but never used it. This is a great illustration of how specialized languages can gain traction without making much of an impact on the broader developer community.

Getting Rusty

Of the newer languages with C-like syntax, both Rust and Go are gaining adoption. Go has a headstart, but a lot of the commentary I’ve seen suggests that Rust is a better language. This is supported by its impressive 220% annual growth rate on Github.

Building a better JavaScript

Two transpile-to-JavaScript languages made it onto the list: TypeScript and CoffeeScript. Since JavaScript is the only language that runs in the browser, a lot of developers are forced to use it. But that doesn’t mean we have to like it. While CoffeeScript is still ahead, TypeScript has the advantage of strong typing (something many developers feel passionate about) in addition to a prettier syntax. If it keeps up its 100% year-on-year growth, it may catch up soon.

Dys-functional

According to an old saw, everyone always talks about the weather but no one ever does anything about it. The same could be said about functional languages. Programming geeks love them and insist that they lead to better quality code. But they are yet to break into mainstream usage, and not a single functional language figures in our top-20 list (although R and Rust have some characteristics of functional languages).

Swift kick

The language with the highest growth of all didn’t even show up on the list because it had no repositories at all in the first half of 2013. Only a few months after it was publicly announced, Swift already had nearly 2000 repos. While it is unlikely to keep up its infinite annual growth rate for long, it is a safe bet that Swift is destined to be very popular indeed.

Methodology

The data for 2013 and 2014 from BigQuery was imported into two CSV files and merged them into a single consolidated file using Bash:

$ cat results-20140723-094327.csv | sort -t , -k 1,1 > results1.csv $ cat results-20140723-094423.csv | sort -t , -k 1,1 > results2.csv $ join -o '1.1,2.1,1.2,2.2' -a 1 -a 2 -t, results1.csv results2.csv | awk -F ',' '{ if ($1) printf $1; else printf $2; print "," $3 "," $4 }'

The first two commands sort the CSV files by language name (the options -t , and -k 1,1 are needed to ensure that only the language name and not the comma delimiter or subsequent text is used for sorting). The join command takes the sorted output and merges it into a single consolidated file with the format:

Language1,Language2,RepoCount1,RepoCount2

If the language is present in both datasets then Language1 and Language2 are identical. If it isn’t, then one of them is empty. Either way we really want to merge these into one field, which is what the awk command does. (A colleague suggested using sed -r 's/^([^,]*),\1?/\1/', but I decided that awk—or pretty much anything—is easier to read and understand.)

I then imported the entire dataset into Google Spreadsheet. The “2014 Projected” column is the 2013 value increased by the overall growth rate in Github repository count for the top 100 languages. This is used as a baseline to compare the actual 2014 figure and calculate the growth rate, since it is most interesting to measure how fast a language is gaining adoption relative to the growth of Github itself.

Roberto A. Vitillo: Regression detection for Telemetry histograms.

Mozilla planet - mo, 28/07/2014 - 16:22

tldr: An automatic regression detector system for Telemetry data has been deployed; the detected regressions can be seen in the dashboard.

Mozilla is collecting over 1,000 Telemetry probes which give rise to histograms, like the one in the figure below, that change slightly every day.

Average frame interval during any tab open/close animation (excluding tabstrip scroll).

Average frame interval during any tab open/close animation (excluding tabstrip scroll).

 

Until lately the only way to monitor those histogram was to sit down and literally stare the screen while something interesting was spotted. Clearly there was the need for an automated system which is able to discern between noise and real regressions.

Noise is a major challenge, even more so than with Talos data, as Telemetry data is collected from a wide variety of computers, configurations and workloads. A reliable mean of detecting regressions, improvements and changes in a measurement’s distribution is fundamental as erroneous alerts (false positives) tend to annoy people to the point that they just ignore any warning generated by the system.

I have looked at various methods to detect changes in histogram, like

  • Correlation Coefficient
  • Chi-Square Test
  • Mann-Whitney Test
  • Kolmogorov-Smirnov test of the estimated densities
  • One Class Support Vector Machine
  • Bhattacharyya Distance

Only the Bhattacharyya distance proved satisfactory for our data. There are several reasons why each of the previous methods fails with our dataset.

For instance a one class SVM wouldn’t be a bad idea if some distributions wouldn’t change dramatically over the course of time due to regressions and/or improvements in our code; so in other words, how do you define how a distribution should look like? You could just take the daily distributions of the past week as training set but that wouldn’t be enough data to get anything meaningful from a SVM. A Chi-Square test instead is not always applicable as it doesn’t allow cells with an expected count of 0. We could go on for quite a while and there are ways to get around those issues but the reader is probably more interested in the final solution. I evaluated how well those methods are actually at pinpointing some past known regressions and the Bhattacharyya distance proved to be able to detect the kind of pattern changes we are looking for, like distributions shifts or bin swaps, while minimizing the number of false positives.

Having a relevant distance metric is only part of the deal since we still have to decide what to compare. Should we compare the distribution of today’s build-id against the one from yesterday? Or the one from a week ago? It turns out that trying to mimic what an human would do yields a very accurate algorithm. If the variance of the distance between the histogram of the current build-id and the histograms of the past N build-ids is small enough and the distance between the histograms of the current build-id and the previous build-id is above a cutoff value K, a regression is reported. Furthermore, Histograms that don’t have enough data are filtered out and the cut-off values are determined empirically from past known regressions.

I am pretty satisfied with the detected regressions so far, for instance the system was able to correctly detect a regression caused by the OMTC patch that landed the 20st of May which caused a significant change in the the average frame interval during tab open animation:

newtab.

Average frame interval during tab open animation of about:newtab.

We will soon roll-out a feature to allow histogram authors to be notified through e-mail when an histogram change occurs. In the meantime you can have a look at the detected regressions in the dashboard.

Hannah Kane: Maker Party Engagement: Week 2

Mozilla planet - mo, 28/07/2014 - 15:48

Two weeks in!

Let’s check in on our four engagement strategies.

First, some overall stats:

  • Events: 862 (up nearly 60% from the 541 we had last week, and more than a third of the way towards our goal of 2400)
  • Hosts: 347 (up >50% from 217 last week)
  • Expected attendees: 46,885 (up >75% from 25,930 last week)
  • Cities: 216 (goal is 450)

Note: I’ll start doing trend lines on these numbers soon, so we can see the overall shape.

Are there other things we should be tracking? For example, we have a goal of 70,000 Makes created through new user accounts, but I’m not sure if we have a way to easily get those numbers.

  • Webmaker accounts: 91,998 (I’m assuming “Users” on this dash is the number of account holders)
  • Contributors: If I understand the contributors dashboard correctly, we’re at 4,615, with 241 new this week.
  • Traffic: here’s the last three weeks. You can see we’re maintaining about the same levels as last week.

——————————————————————–

Engagement Strategy #1: PARTNER OUTREACH

  • # of confirmed event partners: 205 (5 new this week)
  • # of confirmed promotional partners: 63 (2 new this week)

We saw press releases/blog posts from these partners:

We also started engaging Net Neutrality partners by inviting them to join our global teach-ins.

——————————————————————–

Engagement Strategy #2: ACTIVE MOZILLIANS

  • Science Lab Global Sprint happened this week—I don’t yet know the total # of people who participated
  • Lots of event uploads this week from the Hive networks.

——————————————————————–

Engagement Strategy #3: OWNED MEDIA

  • Snippet: The snippet has generated nearly 350M impressions, >710K clicks, and >40,000 email sign-ups to date. We’ve nearly finalized some additional animal-themed icons to help prevent snippet fatigue, and have started drafting a two-email drip series for people who’ve provided their emails via the snippet (see the relevant bug).
  • Mozilla.org: In the first few days since the new Maker Party banner went live we saw a significant drop in Webmaker account conversions (as compared to the previous Webmaker focused banner). One likely cause is that, in addition to changing the banner itself, we also changed the target destination from Webmaker to Maker Party. We’ve rolled back the banner and target destination to the previous version, and are discussing iteration ideas here.

Analysis: We’ve learned quite a bit about which snippets perform best. The real test will be how many email sign-ups we can convert to Webmaker account holders.

——————————————————————–

Engagement Strategy #4: EARNED MEDIA

Planting seeds:

  • Mark had an interview with Press Trust of India, India’s premier news agency that has the largest press outreach in Asia.
  • Brett had an interview with The Next Web

TV/Video:

English:

What are the results of earned media efforts?

Here’s traffic coming from searches for “webmaker” and “maker party.” No boost here yet.

—–

SOCIAL (not one of our key strategies):

#MakerParty trendline: You can see the spike we saw last week has tapered off.

Community Leadership Summit 2014 Group Photo

This past week marked my second year helping out as a co-organizer of the Community Leadership Summit. This Community Leadership Summit was especially important because not only did we introduce a new Community Leadership Forum but we also introduced CLSx events and continued to introduce some new changes to our overall event format.

Like previous years, the attendance was a great mix of community managers and leaders. I was really excited to have an entire group of Mozillians who attended this year. As usual, my most enjoyable conversations took place at the pre-CLS social and in the hallway track. I was excited to briefly chat with the Community Team from Lego and also some folks from Adobe and learn about how they are building community in their respective settings.

I’m always a big advocate for community building, so for me, CLS is an event I try and make it to each and every year because I think it is great to have an event for community managers and builders that isn’t limited to any specific industry. It is really a great opportunity to share best practices and really learn from one another so that everyone mutually improves their own toolkits and technique.

It was apparent to me that this year there were even more women than in previous years and so it was really awesome to see that considering CLS is often times heavily attended by men in the tech industry.

I really look forward to seeing the CLS community continue to grow and look forward to participating and co-organizing next year’s event and possibly even kick of a CLSxPortland.

A big thanks to the rest of the CLS Team for helping make this free event a wonderful experience for all and to this years sponsors O’Reilly, Citrix, Oracle, Linux Fund, Mozilla and Ubuntu!
