I've submitted s talk proposal for the Flock 2017 (sorry for the late
notice), and I'd like discuss with the team the guiding lines for it.
The topic is:
"Marketing - tasks and visions
We would see the light: an overview of marketing that today actually
struggling but that dreams a bright future becoming true"
I still don't know if will be accepted or not, but in the wait of a
response, I'd like to know if there are any argument I should touch you
think it's worth to explain.
I saw the project report Eduardo and Brian explained to the Council, and,
of course, I'd like to add some extrapolations for the talk (just for
reminder) if the authors will allow.
My idea is, at first, to illustrate what mktg is doing, tasks and jobs, and
what we need to get really productive for the continuous work we have to do.
In the second, and most important for my purpose, part (the talk is 60
min. long), I'd like to give hints to the next FOSCo (or whatever else)
about what marketing is expecting by the new body (if it happens) and
defining some future strategy proposal to the Council. At the end give the
spark for a sort of mindsharing with the attending people to get new ideas
(and project) to follow.
We know other distros are stronger than us in the marketing, so I'd like to
reach them (and overcome them, if possible) with the community help.
This is only an idea sketch that I'd like develop with you.
If there's someone who want to be a co-speaker please show up, I'll be glad
At the Fedora Council meeting today, Eduard mentioned work from both
CommOps and Marketing to reach out to universities and students. This
is cool, but I'd *really* like to see it in concert with reviving the
University Outreach objective (which sort of trailed off when Remy
moved on). Additionally, I'd like to make sure we align this with the
audiences identified by the Editions -- "students" alone is very broad!
-- and with the revised Fedora mission statement.
