Love and feeding of marketing team.

Let's do some stuff! And to both points/questions, how about having the first meeting be a sort of review session of goals and things the team has done before as a refresher for old people and an intro for newer ones who aren't sure how to get involved?

Helloooooooooo Marketing Fans,

So...... I will be the first to admit that I've been a little lax (okay, 
actually, super-lax) in the Marketing area lately.  Some of this has 
just been my time, or lack thereof, especially when it comes to meetings 
and having them, and some of it is simply that nobody else is really 
insisting on meeting and getting things done and kicking me in the pants 
about it, either. :)

In the spirit of Getting Things Done, and more generally, having a bit 
more excitement around this joint, I'd like to get an idea for who's 
interested in getting the Marketing Train back on the tracks and up to 
speed. This means: meetings, being a bit more active in IRC, knocking 
out some of the release-time items, and most importantly, thinking about 
NEW THINGS we can do either around raising awareness, new things that 
new contributors can do, or just generally doing new things because 
doing the same stuff over and over and over is, let's face it, super boring.

In short, just two questions:

1: Who's interested in coming to marketing meetings again, and working 
on release-related activities?

2: Does anyone have any new and cool ideas in the marketing area that we 
can pick up and work on?

I'm here with my marketing defibrillators! Let's get it back together, 
folks. I'd like to just pick up with getting back at least on the 
meeting train next Tuesday, and we can adjust the time and whatnot if 
necessary as we go forward.

Other thoughts or comments are welcomed. Flames too. I'm expecting those. :)
