Club Mozilla with Green Visionaries


The Green Missionaries @SASTRA had been spreading a word all about the Environment and the ways to protect it up in all the rural places in and around University. Club Mozilla in collaboration, had took a session on spreading the word Firefox.
Our sincere thanks for theorganizers who had given us a platform to spread our word. More information @http://thegreenvisionaries.blogspot.in/





 Students around were confused, why Mozilla in between Greenery! So, correlated  the Web to a sprout.. A sprout needs nutrition, similarly  Web needs Mozilla..










It should be fine when the audience understand the point.. No matter if you have a chalk and a board or a laser and a projector =)



When the swags are given to the one who gave the correct definition for "Open Source".
The one looking at him would probably be like, whoa man.. I wish I knew da ;-) :-P



We believe interactions would probably strike the ideas into the crowd rather than a Lecture.


Briefly explaining the Missions of Mozilla and the ways of getting involved with Mozilla project



People call it a shirt.. I call it "Adopting Mozilla".


That smile ran up when I gotto know that even there are girls around who are really into Technology and who are Tech Geeks competing with boys..





Comparing the Web to Ecosystem..


"So, how many of you people had been using Mozilla. You had to answer me genuine and you should give a reason each.. "

That was my query and Yeah.. I see quite number of interesting hands put up in the air! =) =D






It was pathetic that we missed Jai that day.. Lets have an awesome session this weekend @ NIT Trichy and Amrita! :D

The evolution of Mozilla and the Web Development

 People are interested.. And yeah, hell..
When we thought would people turn up to a session after a huge day, that was a wrong thought, later I understood.. They have been involved in.. And I tried not to make up anything complicated..
- Simple English
- No Technical Words
- Ended up with a discussion, not a session sort of..





Thinking deep about the OpenSource* and involved with the Topic.. They should have enjoyed, I guess..
 And there he starts with the usual quote..
"Mozilla- Doing good is a part of our code"

With the pancakes of Mozilla at the background should have made the viewers more attractive since it's not actually the always Firefox logo.. Something unique and different..
 



These kids were caught when I have put up a question
"What makes Open Source* different from Free software" ?

They tried answering up and yeah, they almost reached..
So had few swags, later a smile across their face while leaving the Hall..



Thats when I said you ahve lots of Swags awaiting for u..









 Thats me when I have been going with the video muted and I have actually been trying to tell people very briefly right from the start/ history of the Web Development which says " Its a place to build your dreams" and which was obvious..











This pic tells the actual contribution of the Free software, Firefox to the web.. And its developments along..







There goes Jai distributing the swags among the guys and one should notice their expressions..


















That was me again with an interactive session with the people around..
The actual answer by him for my question, "Why would you prefer Firefox to any other browser" when he said he uses Firefox, was that he has been using Firefox for ages together and he couldn't shift to another browser..
That was really true as I had asked the students that how many agrees with him, and there were few 10's in numbered hands in the air.. That came up interesting, and I began to think..









I never wanted something like real boring and presented the stuff very much hilariously.. There the people actually gave their attention, and Yeah i should say that I have grabbed their's actually..



 Their smiles valued a lot to me and infact I boosted myself up..







Here comes one more...






And another one..








I thought this would be an awesome way of concluding.. Put up a slide of SASTRA's Mozilla Poster and told em up that the swags are real worth to us, since our's a non-profit organization.. It would be helpful when you all start contributing Mozilla.. A contribution need not be in bucks.. Could be something like promoting it..
The highest Contribution they could make it would probably use Firefox browser.. That should be a lot from their side! 


And then we ended it up! xD

Evolution of Mozilla-Session

Few random Pics about the session on Mozilla:






Jai- U rock man xD


Smiles on their faces














Refreshing..


Though Promoting.. :p




Happy moments with Jai :')

**Jai on promotion!

D Mozilla Poster




That had been a cute Mozilla's promoting poster flying around the campus!
Its been a hectic work today.. Naresh, a communication rep on behalf of Mozilla who has been infact giving me mental support did sent swags from Chennai yesterday..
The session is on the evening of today and the swags are to be delivered by 1:00 PM..
Since farmers in and around Thanjavur or trichy probably had been praying god with full devotion, the god decided to shower the people.. Unfortunately, the courier guy didnt turn up because of the rain and the swags are in Tanjore @ 3:00 PM..



That was the view..
Then we rushed up Tanjore and somehow managed to get the swags from the courier guy.. The first swag box I had ever got from Mozilla :') :D
I would thank Naresh Kumar for that..

Later, in the presentation.. We rocked! xD

More pics would be put up soon.. The DSLR ones :p



Firefox OS

New Web standards

Firefox OS will produce an implementation of these new Web standards to free mobile platforms from the encumbrances of the rules and restrictions of existing proprietary platforms.

Freedom from proprietary mobile platforms

We’re collaborating with OEMs and carriers directly, giving them more influence to meet the specific needs of their users and market. Users and developers aren’t locked in to one platform, so they can access their info and use apps across multiple devices.



Customization for OEMs and operators

OEMs and operators will be able to provide content and services across their entire device portfolio, regardless of OS. And they will be able to customize user experiences, manage app distribution and retain customer attention, loyalty and billing relationships.
Opportunities for developers

Using HTML5 and the new Mozilla-proposed standard APIs, developers everywhere will be able to create amazing experiences and apps. Developers will no longer need to learn and develop against platform-specific native APIs.
 
Consumer freedom

Consumers who use devices powered by Firefox OS won’t be locked into one specific platform giving them more choice, flexibility and freedom. With Firefox OS, the Web is the platform.





I personally, whenever I see people using Firefox the first question I put up upon them is that why is that you use firefox though you have obvious better browsers such as Chrome..
People generally who doesnt know me, come up with several answers(Of which few are interesting, few are True)

The best answers among them was:

-> Since I was a kid, I use Firefox and yeah I was habituated to it.. (The innocent one's)
-> It has got lots of addons which add up security. .Bla bla bla( The Tech Geeks)
-> Man, come on.. Its an open source and we got to support it( Wow.. Perfect I guess)

And the people who knew me, this was the funniest I ever heard..

 Anna.. I will ask my friend too to use Firefox & Thunderbird anna.. Give me one Mozilla band anna (The Juniors)

Whatever reason it might be.. these kids have been using Mozilla to a good extent as expected..

God knows if they have been doing since I had been taking few sessions about the importance of Mozilla or for the swags..
The above kids were caught on the act of using Firefox! Keep rocking..

This blog was set up in view to do something good to Mozilla..
Mozilla which has been an open source is being helpful to millions of people around.. Ever wondered how open sources are being funded?
We utilize their software and in return we pay nothing..
So, contribute Mozilla.. contributions need not be in bucks.. Promote it!
The best thing YOU could do as a citizen using internet is that start using Firefox.. That should be a biggest contribution from your side! :D
