We are very happy to announce Mozilla will be at CeBIT all next week. Its the first time we have a presence at this event — which is actually the world’s largest and most renowned trade fair for the world of IT and telecommunications. We are able to attend, along with 14 other open source projects (- read a full list here) — thanks to Linux New Media, the CeBIT organizers and the Deutsche Messe. I’ll be attending, along with Chris Hofmann, Tim Riley, Tomcat and Kai Engert. So, be sure to stop, by say hello, and find out what’s new at Mozilla.
