I strongly agree that education is a highly strategic target for LibO. Your connections and 
experiences will be really helpful for us to devise a tactical plan. I would like to work with the 
NYC school system to promote LibO myself, though I don't have any connections there. Perhaps a 
well-designed plan could help me get started...

I think I read somewhere that the was a member from NYC on our membership. Not sure.
I think it's just me! (I live in Queens and work in Manhattan.) But if anyone else is located in 
NYC, let me know--we could arrange in-person meetups for hyperlocal marketing projects.
Hi Ben

Maybe you could try using the new LibreOffice Vols micro-blog site here.

You can register an account, use an existing Twitter Account or an
existing OpenID account.

Feel free to connect and open a NYC Meetup group..

Just an idea

Please make sure that the meeting is logged. We need these to be more efficient. That's if you are meeting to organise anything, we don't really need to see chatter. You never know, some of us could drop in to help you out if we know plans in certain districts. If we are organised right from the start we we get better results.

There should be a set hierarchy:

International Marketing meetings / projects -- logged
National Marketing meetings / projects -- logged
State / Provincial Marketing meetings / projects -- logged
Regional (these encompass more than one city) Marketing meetings / projects -- logged
City Marketing meetings / projects -- logged
City district Marketing meetings / projects -- logged

All of these levels should have a agreed-upon (voted in if necessary) "Lead Marketing member" in charge of the group who is in charge of logging and reporting back to the level (only 1 level) up above their level. The upper level "Lead member" is then responsible to examine, assess and report eventually back to her/his Marketing upper level (maybe once monthly or more if the lower project is important enough to merit direct reporting). * This could easily be done through a "LibO Marketing Blog", but should still be reported back officially to the upper levels if there is any confidential information to be passed up to the upper level.

All of these should be completely transparent to anyone who wishes to see them; even to MS; with the obvious exception of inner marketing strategies which should not be transparent except for declared registered marketing members -- they can join if they are that interested in inner marketing strategy. I think that most people would think this reasonable; why would we open our strategy book to MS or anyone else for them to copy or use against the group? Otherwise, LibO should be recognised as "the" community office suite whose "cachet" is openness to all.

There should always be a "call to help" a couple of weeks prior to participating to a real project so that any person who has suddenly been freed in time to help out, regardless of region, could drop by to help.

IMHO, organising this way will help produce more efficient result in spreading the acceptance of LibO.

I'll put up an example on the Canadian Wiki side to show how this would work. I'll let you know when it is complete.
