Things that made me happy this morning:

From corporate to creative – hello Mozilla!

星期日,December 19th,2010

On the first of December I started my new job at Mozilla and this week I spent in the headquarters in Mountain View,加利福尼亚是一个工作周,基金会邀请所有在这里工作的人和一些贡献者。I don't know why,但不知怎的,我觉得有必要分享我的经历(就像我一样,以雄辩的方式表达出来,他妈的开心又兴奋)。

这周我大开眼界。Having come from a large company which has offices world-wide but reporting as part of a valley-based team I had my share of frustration with miscommunication and feeling left out of conversations.我是一个巨大的力量的一部分,不知何故它并没有朝着同一个方向拉。我冒着风险,让其他人安全地坚持自上而下规定的目标,即使他们听起来不太正确。And that's why I left – my job felt disconnected from the rest and I spent most of my days asking for information of what I should do to align with the rest of the team.

开放式沟通

Mozilla让我吃惊的第一件事就是沟通的数量。你在其他地方需要信息的地方,你在这里的主要技能是分类一个持续的、建设性的信息流。在封闭的系统上什么都没有发生——维基,Etherpad,Google Docs,IRCand Skype are the tools of the trade and everything is edited live.It is amazingly powerful to have a shared Etherpad open and type what you hear and what you want to share whilst listening.NoXLS码文件as an email attachment that needs macros enabled and clog up your inboxes.邮件系统和日历也是基于Web的(Zimbra,事实上)。In fact,作为我的工作机器,我得到的电脑没有安装任何东西——在我签署合同前一周就到了。

When I started here I subconsciously expected the same second-class citizen treatment of being the guy not in the US office and somehow reluctantly took part in conference calls the first week.当面对面与我的团队会面时,我意识到尽管我们是一个6人的团队,在6个不同的时区工作——所以所有人都处于相同的情况下,你不会被5个人在房间里用电话讨论事情的会议电话困住,而不会停下来或解释谁在说什么。

Lack of drama and egos

对我来说,下一个重大的新事情是我所遇到的理解和兴趣的数量。我与营销团队就即将到来的营销活动举行了一次会议,并对能否按照市场营销部门的设想来进行深表怀疑。

This is good as it is the job of creative people to push ahead and force tech luddites to reconsider the current ways.但当它意味着你必须一次性解决方案,并且不能使用开放标准时,它会变得烦人。A lot of companies have a very sane approach to building and maintaining their sites but the marketing materials are terrible,expensive Flash sites or even needing other plugins.You probably had this,同样,获取大量JPG的内部电子邮件也是品牌化进程的第一个标志。

Now,在会上我提到了我的顾虑,市场营销人员问,什么能使它更容易,更快地交付。其他人补充说,在一个小时内,我们非常清楚什么可以交付,看起来很酷。不是听到很多“这是我们需要建立的”,而是有很多非常好的问题和跳跃的想法。太棒了。I am looking forward to this product now.

In every meeting I got more questions than statements – it is amazingly powerful to do that.

Company messaging and introduction

让我们知道,我讨厌团队建设练习,而且所有的手都打上了烙印。我只是无法想象你应该在树林里安排一个团队来帮助彼此覆盖一小块泥土,让他们在办公室里工作得更好。如果办公室里的沟通不起作用,那么你应该在这里解决——简单的说就是。I've been part of a lot of off-sites and suffered a lot of rah rah rah all hands presentations where probably 20 people worked on a few powerpoints to tell the employees of a company who they work for and what might be ahead.

所以当我听说我们将在旧金山与球队会面时,我带着一种恐惧的感觉。发生的事是,我们绕着金门公园走了一会儿,然后一起喝了点酒,吃了顿饭。No games,没有任务掌握作为一个群体,no group hugs and high-fives.Just a walk in the crisp fresh air with the chance to introduce yourself and chat a bit about your experiences.仅此而已。壮观的!

The same applied to the "holiday party" – we had a few busses taking us to a place in the mountains and instead of a stage with a huge logo and rehearsed end of the year speeches we had a "hi,drinks are to the right,食物在那边的房间里,“玩得开心,聊聊天”作为欢迎。相信你们的人会玩得很开心,互相问些有趣的事情?Unheard of!

所有的手都是一个演示文稿和一个视频,但我再一次感到惊讶的是,我在一个大屏幕上观看了一个5分钟的视频,并能对它所代表的内容说“是”。这很有道理。它不必向我推销它的想法,它刚刚提到他们。

Just check these few points:

  • Non-profit– Firefox is fundamentally driven by the Mozilla mission rather than business concerns
  • 授权创新–Firefox允许个人在没有许可或限制的情况下创建和构建
  • Community driven—在其核心,火狐关注的是人,由全球个人社区共同为公众利益服务

This is for Firefox,how about these quotes?

  • We believe that secrecy is trumped by honesty
  • 我们相信网络比拥有更受关注
  • 我们没有花哨的股票缩写,我们没有神圣的摇滚明星

这周我已经失去了很多愤世嫉俗的态度,我和一群新的人一起奔跑,从来没有感觉到我必须了解别人的角度。I've heard people's stories and was inspired by the freedom and initiative people had taken and how much everyone makes their deliveries their personal plans rather than things to check off to get a paycheck.There is no need to measure your work hours as people do what they want to do.All messaging is about what you work on and what might be interesting for others.

我能看到很酷的事情发生在这里,and I am happy to be part of it.

备份美味书签

Thursday,December 16th,2010

好啊,it is not the end of the world yet,buta leaked screenshot最新雅虎的“全力以赴”表明,可口可乐在公司没有光明的前途。

所以为了保存这些年的工作,我把这些年的工作投入到这个很棒的网络服务中,我正在备份我的数据。There are a few simple ways:

然后,您可以在自己选择的浏览器中导入和同步书签,或者将书签上传到谷歌文档。

As to the future?Who knows?

印第安纳琼斯地图与HTML5和谷歌地图

Thursday,December 16th,2010

我现在就在美国,在Mozilla度过了我的第一个星期(背靠背的会议,很多关于这一切的讨论和采访),当我回到酒店的时候美国所有的印第安纳琼斯电影都在播放。Now,I always loved the travel sequences with the moving red line and map and the video of the plane on top (and its copy inRocket Ranger onC64)As I had my trusty工商管理硕士on me I thought I give it a go to re-create the effect inHTML5- and I did:

你可以See the demo online阅读Mozilla Hacks博客上的详细信息:SyncingHTML5video with Google Maps.当然是来源available on GitHub.

我很惊讶达到这种效果是多么容易。Most of playing withHTML5is simply letting yourself go and have a run for it rather than thinking of how hard it might be.

现在这是一个很好的工作机会——有谁是HTML6专家?

Thursday,December 9th,2010

刚刚在LinkedIn中收到一个充满胜利的邀请:

I'm a 猎头(10岁以上)。My client is a City based (5mins of Liverpool St) Digital Agency (40+ staff).他们正在寻找一个领先的前端 HTML5/6 Dev / Guru – it is not a pure developer but someone to guide them on the Front end and to keep up to date with HTML5/6.They will pay what it takes!

Sod thatHTML5在Mozilla演出!这就是未来。
