After talking with Mel Chua and Ankur Sinha on the #Fedora-mktg channel last
night, Ankur and I have decided to embark on a Marketing project for either
F13, or the F14 feature track. As a result, I've decided to actually join the
Marketing team, so here is my formal self-introduction :)
*Full legal name (as you use it is fine)
*City, Country; you may use your timezone if you have a compelling reason not
to specify your city or country
Phoenix, AZ, USA
*Profession or Student status
High School Student
*Company, School, or other affiliation
Deer Valley High School
*Your goals in the Fedora Project
To see Fedora Linux and the Fedora Project shine, and for the project to lead
the FOSS community as a whole. Getting Fedora's awesome community involved is
a key part of this happening, and it's what I am also trying to accomplish in
becoming a local Fedora Project ambassador.
*What do you want to talk about?
Fedora, of course! I'm a member of the KDE SIG, so that's where my expertise
in the distro lies, but pretty much anything related to the project, the
distro or the people is open territory :)
*What would you like to see in Fedora?
Fedora's Four Pillars are one of the major reasons I was so attracted to the
distribution and community. I think that making sure the distro follows these
four goals will help to propel Fedora to the forefront of the GNU/Linux
community as a whole. We should always be striving to package, integrate, ship
and promote cutting edge software, services and designs to the Fedora
community and the FOSS community as a whole. We should strive to lead by
example in not embracing proprietary software solutions at all costs and we
should be willing to fight for our freedom.
*Anything else you'd like to do?
As I said above, I'm going to be working with Ankur Sinha on bringing his
awesome idea to light within the F13 or F14 feature period, and that's
probably what I will be focusing most of my initial work in Marketing on. It
sounds like a very exciting project and could have a huge impact on Fedora's
new users, and attracting possible contributors.
High School Newspaper? Not much :) I'm an ambassador, if that helps :)
*What other projects or marketing effors have you worked on in the past? (List
what you think is relevant)
*What level and type of marketing skills do you have?
Not much besides a veracity and will to make Fedora as awesome as possible :)
*What other skills do you have that might be applicable?
Minimal coding skills, in C++ and python, which I'll be expanding via a few
small projects and fedora-tour in the near future. I may also have a tablet PC
in the near future to help express my (pathetic) artistic skills :-)
Happy Thanksgiving for all your Americans, and happy Thursday for everyone
Ambassador, KDE SIG, News (and now Marketing) :)
