It's a shame about the grey sky, but this tree (an oak, I think?) caught my attention during my run this morning!
I think I've used Firefox for about 17 years. Most of the time it's been my main and default browser. During that time, I worked for the Mozilla Foundation for 3 years.

Today's involved interesting work!
AM: Putting together a survey instrument and framework around digital readiness for delivering online programmes
PM: Adding finishing touches to new We Are Open Co-op email course entitled 'What We Talk About When We Talk About Open'

If you have openings or can offer assistance, please use the #MozillaLifeboat tag!
Sad to see Mozilla laying off 250 people.
