The Mozilla Campus Reps program

I joined the Mozilla Campus Reps program some time back, during the latest sign up session of fall 2008.

Today, I just received an email, kicking the thing into action. Campus Reps is a sub section of the SpreadFirefox campaign, that aims to popularize Firefox as the main browser that people use. Campus Reps volunteer to work in their university/school/college campuses and bring the word (and power) of Firefox to the students.

Quoting from the mail, the projects the group leader has thought up, to begin with, are:

“”1. Mozilla “On the Street” – I want you to grab a video camera and hit the streets to find out what people have to say about Firefox. Pick a few spots on campus or around town and help us better understand what the world thinks about our favorite browser! I will be re-launching the project page soon, but to get an idea of what you can do, check out: http://www.spreadfirefox.com/campusreps/onthestreet. This project will be launching sometime in October… hopefully just in time for Halloween! That should be a great opportunity to get some cool video footage. 🙂 And I plan to have some great gifts for those reps that produce the best video submissions… so start planning now. I will be contacting you in the next few weeks with more details.

2. Firefox Browser Survey – We need you to help pass along a browser survey around campus and to your family and friends. We will have two versions… one for your collegues [sic] at school, and another one for your family and friends. We’re still designing the survey, but plan to release the survey sometime in December, so stay tuned for more about that.””

Hoping to see some action, and because there is simply no doubt about Firefox being the best browser around at the moment (no, IE8 and Opera are no good in comparison), I plan to get as many of the 1200 computer users in GIKI, Topi, Pakistan (my uni) to use Firefox!
