Welcome, Sakis! It sounds like you have a lot of great experience to 
share, and we're glad to have you on board. I've sponsored you for 
membership in the FAS marketing group, and see you already have a wiki 
user page up (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Asamaras) - you're all 
set to go.

Around here, those aren't weaknesses at all. :)

You have perfect timing. We are actually in the last few weeks of the 
Fedora 12 release, so Marketing deliverables are being finished up right 
now - it's a great time to jump in and help on things like screenshots 
or the release tour, especially since you have a technical background as 
well and can help bridge the engineering and the marketing sides of 
things. Doing this will also give you an idea of what we might do for a 
Fedora 13 marketing strategy, which we'll begin thinking about soon.

Are you on IRC? We hang out in #fedora-mktg and have weekly meetings 
(https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Marketing_meetings) in #fedora-meeting 
on irc.freenode.net, on Tuesdays at 2100 UTC (the next one is about 13 
hours from now) and that's a great chance to introduce yourself, find 
out what's going on, and get started. I'm mchua; feel free to ping me
