Status Updates on Air Mozilla

I just watched a Weekly Status Update on Air Mozilla for the first time in a while, and want to say that they are utterly great! These videocasts are an enormous improvement on how it used to be, trying to listen through cranked-up earphones to a lossy and droppy international phone call audio feed of a bunch of unknown and unseeable people miles from a microphone, who generally hadn’t prepared what they were going to say. This rocks – many kudos to Asa, who produces them.

You can find status updates in the On Demand section of the Mogulus Flash client. (Although this week’s doesn’t seem to be there yet.) Now all we need is a <video>-based system ;-)

Update: If you watch the latest one (Dec 8th) you get to meet the entire Mobile team and the QA team as well.

  1. The video for status meetings has turned them from “barely tolerable” to “almost enjoyable” for me. I don’t think most of the people in MV quite understand how bad the prior experience was.

  2. From the perspective of someone who’s not deeply involved and maybe is only interested in a third or half of the information, plain text is still better, because you can easily skip whole paragraphs.

    I’m sure the video is nice for people who want most or all of the information that’s presented, though.
