I've tried a few times to send out whenisgood requests so that we can find a time where people can make it, but week after week, there's either no one or next to no one around. Generally when there are, it's people with an interest in what we're doing but not an interest in actually /doing/ something. 

I'm guilty of this too. I haven't attended a single mktg meeting this
cycle. I'll make sure I change that in the future.

/me bookmarks links.

But honestly, I'm just one person, and messages to this list tend to fall silent, and there's nobody coming to the marketing meetings. Most of my time lately has been falling into making sure Flock happens successfully. If anyone has any suggestions at all about how to get more of you involved in doing things, I am listening with both ears and a few spares! 

Getting folks involved is a common problem with all teams IMO. No one
has a concrete solution. What I do is work and make noise (*lots* of
noise: blog posts, mails to ambassadors etc. lists) about it and hope
that the "leading by example" paradigm comes into play. Making noise
also lets the community know of what tasks are on/pending/done and
someone or the other always finds something interesting enough to help

I also tend to catch folks I know and trick/bribe them into doing
something for me (and then writing about it). /me looks at Nitesh.

I'll pay more attention to marketing this cycle. 
Warm regards,
Ankur (FranciscoD)
