May 2009


If you take a look on the right side of the page, you’ll see a Mozilla Labs design challenge logo. That’s because we’re running a Summer 2009 Design Challenge, which is currently open to submissions! The topic is “Reinventing Tabs in the Browser” (a topic I am very interested in).

Click the logo in the right sidebar (or click here) to go to the page with the detailed description of the design challenge, including the deadlines and the instructions for submitting your concept. Go check it out!

Hi everybody,

Just a quick note that there will be a Labs night tomorrow night (May 28) in San Francisco. See the link for time and location details.

The main topic will be about the newest Mozilla Labs experiment, Jetpack, which is Kind Of A Big Deal.

If you’re in the area, please stop by!

I’ve written before about how Ubiquity needs a better experience for new users and how our marketing doesn’t communicate what Ubiquity is. So, I’m spending a couple of days re-writing the about:ubiquity pages and making a new tutorial.

Until now, the top of the about:ubiquity page has said:

UBIQUITY: AN EXPERIMENT IN CONNECTING THE WEB WITH LANGUAGE

It sounds vague, cumbersome, and academic, and it doesn’t help a user understand what Ubiquity is for. I was trying to think of a replacement, and I typed:

UBIQUITY: DON’T SURF THE WEB. COMMAND IT.

What do you guys think of that as a slogan? Anybody with marketing experience want to comment?
