Millener among top Network 50
Thanks to Geoff Millener, fourth-graders can watch sharks, sea turtles and saltwater reef fish in real-time on 4K ultra-high-definition TV in Masey Stubblefield’s classroom at Red Bank Elementary School.
That’s the sort of work that got the attention of the Mozilla Network, an offshoot of the company that created the Firefox Internet browser. It honored Millener by listing him as one of “50 People Who Made the Internet a Better Place in 2016.”
Millener, 28, grew up in Chattanooga and had a variety of tech jobs here. They included helping people learn 3D printing on the 4th Floor of the downtown Chattanooga Public Library, being a program manager at DevDev, a digital literacy pilot program, and his current job as innovation and technology programs manager at the Public Education Foundation.
Millener was modest about making Mozilla’s Network50 list, saying everything he did here was in partnership with other people and organizations.
“It’s all in partnership. Chattanooga works in partnership,” Millener said.
