Mozilla: we've taught reading, not writing

Mozilla Festival will this year be held in London from 9 to 11 November. A press release states that the "yearly celebration of learning and innovation" is gathering people together to "explore the web, learn together, and make things that can change the world". Those invited include coders, designers, journalists, educators, filmmakers, gamers, makers and youths from more than 40 countries, who'll be involved with brainstorming, design challenges and sprints that will shape the future of media and the web.

Themes this year include hackable games, making the web physical and web-native cinema, but Mozilla's also using the festival to place a firm emphasis on the future of web technology from an educational standpoint. .net spoke to Mozilla Foundation Executive Director Mark Surman to find out why.
