Firefox's new start page is a gateway drug to awesome Web literacy

The Mozilla Foundation — who make Firefox — have been doing some really cool things with Firefox's "start page" (the blank screen you get when you open a new browser tab or window), but this is the coolest: an interactive doodle that invites you to learn to code in the simplest, least-intimidating, most fun way possible.

The project is part of Maker Party, which is meant to engage Internet users with maker culture and Web literacy, and it involves global, live, in person events (you can even host your own) where budding makers and old hands can gather to learn how to better make the Web, and make the Web better.
