The End (of the festival)

The festival ended on November 5th. We all started making our way back home on the 6th and 7th.  Our biggest souvenir was the amazing experience.

Even though things didn’t go as planned, things happened as they should have.  We did not expect Mozilla to want to take on our project.  If the project will go forward is now in the hands of Future Class and that is an amazingly empowering position to be in, especially as students.

We also grew closer as a group.  Up until this point, we’d gotten to know each other, but we hadn’t really gotten to talk and learn about each other.

Aside from the awesomeness of Drumbeat and the important things we have to get moving on, I wanted to acknowledge and honor how important this was to me and, I think, our group. In these spaces we’ve managed to build important things between the six of us that I hope will lead to some long-term productive collaborations and friendships.

So, I leave with this is to be continued, by the individual members of the class. I am sure this experience was impactful in ways we are aware of and ways we are not… and it only took 2.5 days.
