Personally I believe a large portion of our efforts needs to be going toward
educational institutions.

We need to get users early and keep them.

I've updated promotional and marketing project ideas on the wiki in two places today:

1. US (and Canada)-Specific:

(I fleshed out the list of project ideas based on this old email thread.

2. Global:

(Here I added Street Teams and the Broadcast Mailing List)

What I propose we do next is build small teams to address one or two of the major ideas. I think we 
need to focus on a small number of things as we build up our promotional teams and abilities.

- My top priority would be PR (Media Relations), where we can learn from Italo's work in Italy.
- Right after that, I'd put Education.

It probably makes sense to continue focusing on the website development now, and then move into 
these marketing and promotion tasks after we complete the site. Although the PR work can go on in 
parallel, I'd expect.

Hi Ben:

Thanks for doing this. Yes, getting the PR would seem the priority. Getting the temporary Silverstripe site is taking a little longer and should be finished by week's end Sunday (hopefully) and we will be able to better concentrate on PR (Canada for my part). I'm hoping to getting back to constructing a mail listing for PR announcements in Canada.

Education right now is a little on hold. I am wondering how LibreOffice will be released in its final form. Right now, no spellcheck and no help files are a big problem from the point of view of an office suite for educational purposes. I am really not sure if I could really sell this as a serious MSO contender. The devs are looking into this.
