This is a reminder ... During the last meeting, we had agreed in
principle to meet every 2nd Monday of each month. As we still have a few
outstanding items from our first meeting, we had agreed that May 16th
would be a good date to meet again, and, from there on, we would meet on
the 2nd Monday of each month.

Our agenda pages may be found on the wiki[1]




Ooops! It just occurs to me -- Drew and Tim.

Could someone update the agenda for next Monday? Are there points that need
to be covered from the last meeting? We should perhaps get an update on the
Spanish DVD version -- where are we on it and what, if any help in
translation is needed?



The agenda looks skimpy.

I haven't been following closely the discussion about the disc. That
issue appears to consume the agenda.

I'd like to see more attention to "North American Community - what?
(Remainder of time)" Presumably the mission of the NA group is what is
driving the production of the disc. Having just come off of two expos,
it seems to be that much more could be done to increase the visibility
of LibreOffice. had nice LibreOffice presence...thanks to
Dona Hertel, Andy Brown and my insider position (day-of-the-event and
volunteer manager). Dona's already provided some information. I was
not close enough to the action at the booth to get much detail.
Tech Tonic at Western WA University for students, faculty, staff... I organized the Bellingham LUG
appearance. We were right across from Microsoft (They got
nothing...Kinect). Anyone interested in technology was stopping by our
booth to see Linux running on a laptop and a netbook. We had a variety
of apps open, including LibreOffice. And talked with people about
LibO. Not many knew about LibO; almost all had at least heard of
OOo...easy to communicate. informally...LibO is almost the same
technology as OOo. The major difference is that LibreOffice is a
community around the technology, while OOo is controlled by a large
tech company.

If you look at the link to Tech Tonic, you will see that this approach
landed well with the participants.

But what about elsewhere? What's happening with LibreOffice NA
marketing? This question should be central and revisited if only
briefly at each of these meetings.
