Mozilla Announces "Open Web Docs" Following Last Year's Layoffs

Last year during the big round of layoffs at Mozilla the entire Mozilla Developer Network (MDN) writers team was laid off. That was a particularly sad blow considering how valuable the MDN documentation has been to web developers as a very useful resource. Today the Mozilla folks are announced Open Web Docs in seemingly looking to have the community take over.

Following those unfortunate layoffs last summer, they exposed all of the Mozilla Developer Network documentation to GitHub. Now they are announcing the Open Web Docs organization.

"Open Web Docs (OWD) is an open collective, created in collaboration between several key MDN partner organizations to ensure the long-term health of open web platform documentation on de facto standard resources like MDN Web Docs, independently of any single vendor or organization. It will do this by collecting funding to finance writing staff and helping manage the communities and processes that will deliver on present and future documentation needs," was written on the Mozilla Hacks blog.

    I hope one or both of the ends has a panel that is easily removable from the inside, otherwise I can see some people thinking it funny to roll one over, trapping the occupant(s) inside and optionally setting fire to it. For some reason, homeless people are regarded as worthy of abuse by some people.

      How the dickens did that happen? I'm not usually that scatterbrained.

    I dunno, I saw plenty of documentation from IBM or Oracle that was more than capable of trapping and crushing someone. Usually it was an intern rather than a homeless person, but is there really that much difference?
