Hi Mike,

This is very topical in the Open Source community. Given the news on 
RedHat and Fedora and people's concerns on privacy, it is a good time to 
have a marketing campaign. Here are a few ideas (basically builds on 
your example)

1. Similar to the prior: No (In large Font) next to a) Data Mining, b) 
Telemetry, c) Hidden Algorithms

2. Instead of the NO, we can use a spyglass and cross it out in the 
first idea

3. Puppet Strings: Show a bunch of documents  attached to puppet 
strings, being controlled by a hand (representing other office 
software). Next to this, show some documents free from strings and happy 
under the LibreOffice logo, illustrating the freedom and control you 
have over your documents.

4. Road Sign: Create a visual of a road sign with one direction labeled 
"Data Mining, Telemetry, Hidden Algorithms" and the other "LibreOffice", 
showing the clear distinction between the paths.

For these ideas we can use a subtitle within the image as - "Don't worry 
about prying eyes on your data or hidden AI algorithms. With 
LibreOffice, your content is yours alone."

Kind Regards,

Hi everyone,

Check out this post on Reddit:

Someone is asking whether LibreOffice "collects user data for AI". We've
had similar questions on social media as well, so perhaps we can make a
marketing campaign out of this?

For instance, in the last few years we've used this image to highlight
the fact that LibreOffice doesn't require subscriptions to anything:

I think the big "NO" is effective on social media here, attracting
attention. So how about a variant on this image, confirming that
LibreOffice doesn't "mine" any data or do anything with AI?

Of course, some people find AI/LLM tools useful in the context of office
software, so we shouldn't try to simply paint them as bad. But stress
that LibreOffice does nothing with your content, except let you work on it.

Thanks in advance for any ideas/feedback!
