Mozilla Drumbeat Challenge at NSC1

Mozilla Drumbeat Challenge at NSC1

Have an idea about making the open web a better place? Mozilla is hosting a session at NSC1 that might be the perfect place to show it off. Dubbed “Drumbeat,” participants will have 5 minutes to either outline a concrete project idea that will make the web better or simply explain the open web and why it matters. This event takes place the evening of Day 1 at Neoteny Singapore Camp and presentations will be judged Joi Ito, Mark Surman and others.

Why?
Mozilla is launching a new initiative called Drumbeat in early 2010. The first step: find talented social entrepreneurs and communicators who want to create a better, more open internet. Your presentation is a chance to get involved in Mozilla Drumbeat early on, ensuring that you and your ideas are a part of the Drumbeat story right from the start.

What’s in it for me?
We’ll videotape, upload and feature your presentation on the Mozilla Drumbeat website.
‘Ideas’ presentations will be included in the Drumbeat project idea stream, offering an opportunity to attract attention, volunteers and supporters.
‘Ultimate’ talks will be entered into a global competition for best presentation.
If your idea or presentations is amongst the best globally, you’ll also have a chance to participate in the Drumbeat Festival, tentatively scheduled for June 2010 in Amsterdam.
