This is Zak Greant's weekly report on his activities for the Mozilla Foundation from January 19th to 25th, 2009.

Summary

A good week - we made progress on the Internet as Public Good Symposium, which is the major task on my Mozilla plate right now. However, an unexpected event at another client meant that my Friday was a bit messed up. Will work on reviewing bugs and other missed responsibilities over the weekend.
