Consumer Press Meetings in Madrid

This week has been a busy week for Tristan and Anne-Julie. They headed to Spain on Monday afternoon, and met with our Mozilla community in Madrid on Monday evening. An early start saw them meeting with some very high-level press publications. It was the start of a big push for us to reach more consumer audiences by talking with more newspapers and magazines which have a more general readership. Meetings included:

  • El País (Largest newspaper in Spain)
  • Quo (monthly magazine about science for general public)
  • IDG.es (video interview) (The biggest technological specialized editorial group with magazines such as
  • Computer World, PC World, Dealer World …)
  • Cinco Días (second business newspaper in Spain)
  • El Mundo (second largest newspaper in Spain)

Here’s some amazing press which has already been published today –
