And Now for Something Completely Different: MozFest 2023
by Dave Shumaker
MozFest 2023, billed as "part art, tech and society convening, part maker festival, and the premier gathering for activists in diverse global movements fighting for a more humane digital world," was held March 20–24. Aptly, it was named MozFest (the Mozilla Festival) rather than MozCon (the Mozilla Conference). It was radically different from the usual conferences of information professionals. This NewsBreak focuses on some of the more traditional events that took place during the week.
