[Campus-princeton-staff] Mozilla at NYC-area OpenHatch events

Hi everyone!

Before I begin, I think some introductions are in order:

Jennie works at Mozilla and has been coordinating our efforts to bring
Mozilla to our Open Source Comes to Campus events.  I met her at AdaCamp
<>, which I highly recommend to
all of you.

Hanne is a student at SUNY Stony Brook who helped organize an Open Source
Comes to Campus event at her school last spring, and is organizing another
one on Sunday, October 19th.  Fun trivia: she's also organizing this
Unhackathon <>.

Katherine, Lisha and Diana organized our Open Source Comes to Campus event
at Princeton University last fall, and our planning to run another event,
probably in November.  They were the very first campus to run an event
without an OpenHatch person in attendance, and proved that it was totally

(Katherine also went to Hacker School <>,
which I have not been to but hear great things about from
Sumana Harihareswara - who mentored at both the Princeton and Stony Brook
events and met Jennie at Adacamp.)

I'm emailing you all rather than separately because I want Hanne,
Katherine, Lisha and Diana to know about each other, as NYC-area students
who are also open source community organizing superstars.  And also because
Jennie will need to have the same conversations with each of you: namely,
how would you like to incorporate Mozilla into your events?

Mozilla has NYC offices so we should be able to get several mentors
involved.  I'm familiar with the Mozilla Science Lab, which runs out of NYC
and is headed up by the inimitable Kay Thaney, who I'm hoping to convince
to attend one or both events.  Jennie I think has some suggestions as well.

We can also talk about building ongoing relationships.  How can we help
interested students (including perhaps yourselves!) become ongoing
contributors to Mozilla?

Looking forward to figuring this all out with you.
