20 Big Ideas to Connect the Unconnected - @Mozilla
The National Science Foundation (NSF) and Mozilla announce the first batch of Wireless Innovation for a Networked Society (WINS) grantees, which is allocating $2 million for innovative ways to get offline parts of the U.S. connected. "Supporting projects that keep the web accessible, decentralized, and resilient," the 20 initial WINS winners will receive between $10k and $60k each to build working prototypes of their ideas, all of which are "affordable, scalable, open-source, and secure" and seek to expand the internet, including the infrastructure it runs on, to disconnected areas. Such areas are put into two categories by WINS: "Off the Grid" projects, which aim to help folks stay connected in the event of a disaster that knocks out connection, and "Smart Community Networks" projects, which seek to bring internet access to communities lacking reliable access at present due to access being exorbitantly expensive and/or the community being situated in an isolated location.

What the Grayscale Challenge Taught Us About Phone Addiction - Internet Citizen
There’s a lot of talk these days about how addicted we are to our screens. At Mozilla, a few of us tried our own experiment to see if turning our phones to grayscale would change how we interact with our tech. What follows is a conversation among two Mozillians after going gray for a week — Tim, a design practitioner, and Daniel, a brand strategist.
