I just read (among other things) over at Wired that Blake Ross is planning on making some videos of stunts to spread Firefox, in order to inspire the Spread Firefox community:
What is clear is that video is set to become a greater part of the strategy, with Blake Ross, Firefox’s lead architect, due to start publishing a weekly video diary of his own awareness drive.
It’s going to be much more shaky-camera, home-video quality than professional style,said Stanford University student Ross, 19.We’ve got a couple of humorous and edgy ideas planned — one has us making the rounds on the Stanford campus and spreading Firefox in a less-than-traditional way.
We want to inspire people to do the kinds of activities we’re going to film. Actually, I want to get into the film industry when I’m done with all this computer stuff, so I’ve done a fair amount of video production and editing over the last couple of years. I’m looking forward to it. It should be hilarious.
Cool. I’m looking forward to seeing what comes of this!
