Mozilla wants us move from using the web to making the web. It has launched Webmaker, an online project with new and existing tools from Mozilla and plans a summer of collaborative and community events.

Mozilla Webmaker aims to create an generation of webmakers by providing:

  • 1) Tools including Popcorn for web video, Hackasaurus for remixing and, coming soon, Thimble for creating web pages.
  • 2) Projects, how-tos and recipes, designed to help people at all levels  - from tweaking your blog template to building apps
  • 3) Community events, meet-ups and hack jams

Partners already include Tumblr, Creative Commons, Code for America, SoundCloud, the San Francisco Public Library and the London Zoo.

The growing list, and information about how to become involved is on the Summer Campaign 2012 page of the Mozilla Wiki.
