Drumbeat.org in it’s current state has been live for a year and has helped support the Drumbeat community that:
- has produced numerous projects that have since become core components to the Mozilla Foundations work efforts,
- helped us run international events in Barcalona and London,
- lead numerous community events worldwide.
We wanted a platform where people could let people could tell the world about their web projects, have the community help them out and have them made better. We received loads, with some of my favourites being:
