Hi Marc, Hi Charles, all,

I just created a wikipage at:

as indeed mailing lists tend to bury valueable contributions. I propose to
advertize this page unrestricted and widely and be very open about even the
craziest contributions.

At the Conference in Berlin we will then be able collaboratively work out,
which ideas:
- seem to make sense to us
- find somebody commiting himself and ressources
- and thus are implementable

Chances for your proposals are of course higher, if you join us and you are a
part of the 'we' in Berlin. ;)

Sorry for dropping in and hijacking the thread -- I was lurking and think this
should not loose inertia. Looking forward for your proposals!



Thanks for creating the page, but ... I will not be attending Berlin as I doubt very few Americans (South, Central or North) will have the funding abilities to do so. Secondly, unlike what the subject line of discussion "Defining a marketing strategy" of this thread, the wiki page states:

"Note that there is not a section about 'product strategy' or 'development direction' as that is a whole different issue and does not belong here.

Note again: Nothing here has any commitment to it yet, if you want to see it implemented, commit yourself and make us love your idea in Berlin! "

A clear indication that this will not be a serious exercise for those of us who do wish to speak to the topic of strategy (again, Italo would have to take part in the discussion as we have all agreed that he leads in the area of marketing for the project).

If you are looking for marketing ideas, there are over 12 months, and more, of good ideas on the marketing section, and, it would only take for a person to collect them in one area -- which has already been done "Marketing wiki pages" <-- I did made an effort of keeping the wiki pages organized as best as possible and have committed to re-organize the pages.

If this were a serious attempt at "Defining a marketing strategy", I for one would hope that the group would have seriously examined the marketing pages and were familiar with its contents and then perhaps made an initial note of what has already been spoken of by the community.

It seems to me, that, given the short amount of time the LiboCon provides to members who are in attendance, it would be far better to arrive with at least some framework of defining marketing strategy already in play. To do this, and to keep the discussion topic focused, requires committed participants.
