As of today—April 3, 2017—I’ve been working as a Mozilla staffer for 11 years. Eleven years of documenting the open Web, as well as, at times, certain aspects of the guts of Firefox itself. Eleven years. Wow. I wrote in some detail last year about my history at Mozilla, so I won’t repeat the story here.

I think 2017 is going to be a phenomenal year for the MDN team. We continue to drive forward on making open web documentation that can reach every web developer regardless of skill level. I’m still so excited to be a part of it all!

A little fox that Sophie got me

Last night, my eleven-year-old daughter (born about 10 months before I joined Mozilla) brought home this fox beanie plush for me. I don’t know what prompted her to get it—I don’t think she’s aware of the timing—but I love it! It may or may not actually be a red panda, but it has a very Firefox look to it, and that’s good enough for me.

Time to put out there my personal opinion of the order of excellence of the Star Wars films, including Rogue One.

My ordering of these films changes over time. Repeat viewings, new understanding, and information added by later additions to the franchise all affect my opinions of the series. For instance, seeing Rogue One definitely changed how I think of A New Hope.

8. Episode I: The Phantom Menace

7. Episode II: Attack of the Clones

6. Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

5. Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

4. Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

3. Rogue One

2. Episode VII: The Force Awakens

1. Episode IV: A New Hope

I know my ranking deviates wildly from most fans’, but I’m okay with that.
