Many people have written a lot about the busy, energizing yet very fun event that took place last week-end in Barcelona. Jane has the most comprehensive report of the event in my opinion, and I won't repeat too much of what she wrote, except that it was wonderfully organized (congrats to William and Delphine)).
What I particularly like about the event is that it reflects what the European Mozilla community is about: energetic, speaking dozens of languages, extremely diverse yet driven to the same goal. I guess you have to attend to feel this, and I like exposing my fellow mozillians from other continents to what really makes the European community so unique.
One thing that I enjoyed doing while in Barcelona was helping with the Mozilla 2010 goals. This is yet another testament of what makes Mozilla so different from other organizations: we work with the community to discuss and set goals for the whole project. I guess that for most companies, working with non-employees to define goals would be a non-starter!
