OK, should we edit that? Note that there's always going to be cross-over
between groups and as long as the work's getting done, I don't think
anyone will be upset if it's done with someone wearing a "marketing" hat
or "ambassador" hat. ;-)

But the materials provided by Marketing have a direction, and any
materials we're creating should stick to a story we want/need to convey
to users (and those will be consumed directly by users or by ambassadors
talking to users).

OK. If you want to take a first pass at that, it'd be awesome. Thanks!
