Good evening all.
Hi, my name is Ivan Makfinsky and I live in Washington, DC. My Fedora
Account System username is makfinsky, and my IRC nick is makfinsky.
I decided to join the Fedora Marketing team after meeting Robyn Bergeron
at this past weekend's FADNA, and am interested in joining because I am
an ambassador and find marketing to be integral to being an ambassador.
Background: I have been working with Linux for years, am a contract
consultant and instructor for Red Hat and do plenty of work
independently. I have been a Fedora Ambassador for just over a year now.
Just recently finished the RHCA and have worked primarily as a SysAdmin
and Systems Architect.
This is the first marketing project I have worked on, sort of. I've been
doing a fair amount of research on marketing in the past few years,
especially since I became an independent consultant. Being an
independent requires that you do all your own marketing and branding.
The work done on the Fedora Project in terms of branding and marketing
is rather impressive.
Am very excited to help in whatever way I can.

Hi, Marketing Folks --
Earl Malmrose of ZaReason, a computer maker in Berkeley which offers Fedora
as one of the OS options on a range of their products (mostly the
laptop/netbooks, I think), sent me this question in the e-mail below and I
couldn't answer him.
Does anyone know if such a wiki/website animal exists in the Fedora realm?
Thanks in advance.

Fedora 13 is looking good. We're now offering it as a preload option on our
Teo netbook. Are there any wikis/websites listing where to buy hardware with

F14 schedule by, or if there was any particular gameplan/process for
PS: Marketing folks - for reference, the F13 schedule was made via the
"Mel sits down with John at FUDCon Toronto" method, but... this
obviously does not scale. ;)
Fedora 13 released with open 3D drivers and Python 3 stack
By Ryan Paul
I tested Fedora 13 myself to see how it compares to the previous
version. It's a fairly solid release, certainly one of the better
offerings from Fedora that I've seen in a while. The improvements
relative to version 12 are somewhat modest, but compelling enough to
motivate an upgrade. The general level of fit and finish has increased
since the previous version. After spending several hours with Fedora 13,
my conclusion is that the new hat is a good fit.
