Mozilla Foundation: 10 Basic Principles – Not only for the Internet

Mitchell Baker, head of the Mozilla Foundation, just published in her blog The Mozilla Manifesto where she describes 10 basic principles for the internet, such as: “Transparent community-based processes promote participation, accountability, and trust”, or “Magnifying the public benefit aspects of the Internet is an important goal, worthy of time, attention and commitment.” If you enlarge the focus of the principles over the focus on the internet, you see that these are principles for co-operation within and between groups in a participative manner.

So you read (brackets viz. additions in brackets are added to enlarge the focus): “Individuals must have the ability to shape their own experiences (on the Internet).” “(The Internet; read: The group activity) should enrich the lives of individual human beings.” or “Individuals must have the ability to shape their own experiences (on the Internet).”
