The world wide web is like your relationship history. They come. They go. And sometimes before you even get to know each other. But in the meantime, become part of my circles on Google+ and we can at least be wild and crazy kids until next August. Otay?

Google+ will shut down in August of the next year. I suggest Mewe as an alternative.

I need to thank you.

Here is a message of hope for you as we look back on 2018 -- and ahead to 2019.

On this Giving Tuesday, there's hope for all of us.

Give to Mozilla

Dear Friend,

Thank you.

I took a moment to pause and reflect on 2018 today. It's not been an easy year. But as I started to dwell on the hard parts of the year, I stopped myself. Yes, in a lot of ways 2018 has been a hard year. But for every difficult thing that happened this year I was able to think of a reason to feel hopeful. When I looked back at all those reasons, they had one thing in common.


You — tens of thousands of you stood up in the fight to protect net neutrality. We faced a setback with the vote to effectively end net neutrality in the United States, but we're not giving up. Just last week we filed arguments in the US courts to keep the fight going. Our efforts to reinstate net neutrality in the United States will continue.

You — thousands of you made Facebook listen when the awful news broke of how Facebook and Cambridge Analytica had played fast and loose and irresponsible with millions of users' personal information. And because of you, Facebook is definitely listening.

You — over 26,000 of you signed on to hold Venmo accountable when one of our Mozilla Fellows accessed every public transaction made on the financial app. Highlighting those startling private details from Venmo's publicly available data brought about a much needed conversation around what personal information should be public.

And that's why I'm going to look back on 2018 and not focus on the hard parts. I'm going to look back on 2018 and focus on you. On all the passion you showed. On all the caring you showed. On all the hope you showed in the constant fight for a better internet, a better world. And make no mistake, those two go hand in hand.

Mozilla has an amazing community of supporters. People who take action. People who work every day to educate and advocate. And people who donate their hard-earned money to keep us going right alongside you.

If you can, on this Giving Tuesday, please chip in to keep this work going for all of us, for all of you.

Thank you for making 2018 a year I will always remember.

Perception gap: Is it better to give than to get?

Welcome to Perception Gaps, a new podcast from the Monitor.

This episode covers a topic near and dear to my heart: generosity. As a child, I was blessed by the generosity of strangers. Did you know that the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is when Americans give the most? For good reason! A lot of people feel the holiday spirit, and feel motivated to give to those around them.

In this episode we explore the joy that comes from giving to others. Michael Norton, coauthor of the book "Happy Money," said their research confirmed what many of you may already know: You experience more happiness from giving to others than from buying a treat for yourself. That coffee? Maybe treat the person behind you in line. That Salvation Army bell-ringer? Why not drop a few bucks into the bucket and wish him a Happy New Year. Or lean in and provide a winter coat and boots to a child in need. You could make a lasting impact, one that has ripple effects for generations to come.

As we approach the holidays, look for opportunities around you to give. You will not be disappointed. And in fact, you might find generosity generates happiness within you.

How to police a community
Those things work miracles in your heart and in your spirit … People give to those organizations and to those programs because they know there's a need and that's how they can help. And if you deny [that help], I have learned, if you deny somebody's ability to help you, you're denying them the blessing of being able to help."
