Sounds like an excellent plan! I suspect they will now know of it ... I
am sure someone at POSSCON will raise the topic after having read this
on our list. :-)

Maybe... In 2012 I have been invited to conferences in Tunisia and
Poland, and in 2013 I have been invited in Oman and Saudi Arabia. By the
way, these are the ones that I could or I will be able to make according
to my schedule. These are in addition to those I have filed papers for,
which have always been accepted. So, ignoring TDF does not seem popular,
but might be popular in a specific environment. I might understand the
position though, as the supposedly superior license, which should have
attracted hundreds of developers, is not attracting, and listening to
the growth of our developers based on a copyleft license might hurt.

Well, quite honestly, I notice that some of our sponsors take part in that particular conference. If we were interested, perhaps a well placed call/email could help the adoption to POSSCON a little.

IMO, the whole marketing strategy in N.America (US in particular) is different than that of anywhere else. The in-grained "for-profit" phylosophy permeates in all areas of N.American life and coming to grips with opensource software is a difficult concept with which to come to grips for most. The strategy being used elsewhere did very little to work in the N.A. scene with OOo. Perhaps it needs a little more tweaking for LibreOffice to make substantial inroads. IMO, it should involve a two-prongued approach to gathering interest with dev and consumer -- for more market penetration, more marketing strategies/emphasis on the 350 million US consumers.

Re: requests where you are asked to speak. It would be nice if you forwarded these events/locations to the marketing list as I add these to our international events calendar. I am not sure if these are listed.
