Many blog post ares showing disappointment and misunderstanding following the announcement that Mozilla is stoping the development of Firefox OS for smartphones.

Here's my take on this important question:
Our mission is to "promote openness, innovation and opportunity on the Web". Neither IoT in general nor the connected home more specifically is today part of the open web. But if we move quickly and aggressively enough into this immature market, we may have the opportunity to shape the technology, plant our flag and claim the connected home as part of the open web. And if we can pull this off, then our mission and manifesto become very relevant.
