I'm with Joe on this. As long as we have people willing to work on a
specific area of marketing, we don't need to limit our focus. When the
products were discussed, an important point was that each team would
have liaisons in the product workgroups: ambassadors, designers,
marketers, testers etc.. In due time, I expect the worgroups to start
discussing marketing with us, quite like Matt brought this up.

We've already been trying to divide our work. For instance: some of the
marketing team focus on the magazine; I try and focus on tasks related
to ambassadors and keep up with the desktop SIG (which sort of makes me
a liaison with these two teams). If we can get just enough people
involved to divide our focus on the different products/spins/whoever
needs marketing we'll be just fine. The ideal situation would be to have
a few marketing team members working with each product/spin/ IMO.

I think the only issue here is that we're understaffed, so a starting
point would be to start a recruitment campaign of sorts to increase our
numbers? Ideas? Probably a different thread?
Warm regards,
Ankur (FranciscoD)
