14:41:47 <x3mboy> I think that's all from me

14:42:21 <tg-fedmktg> <b​t0dotninja> :)
14:50:06 <x3mboy> Ok, so Having this ideas
14:50:27 <x3mboy> How our mission statement should look like?
14:51:31 <bcotton> To promote the use of and contribution to Fedora by publicizing work done by the community
14:51:49 <tg-fedmktg> <b​t0dotninja> Umm
14:53:50 <tg-fedmktg> <b​t0dotninja> Maybe we need research another marketing projects missions just to no miss something or have another pov
14:54:58 <bcotton> a little bit of a subject change, but this article seems timely based on our discussion
14:55:01 <bcotton> #link
14:55:35 <bcotton> @bt0dotninja do you know of similar projects that have a volunteer marketing team?
14:56:13 <bcotton> and more importantly, ones that do a good job that we'd want to be more like :-)
14:56:34 <tg-fedmktg> <b​t0dotninja> Not really but sounds like something than another projects wanted to have
14:56:55 <x3mboy> #link
14:57:05 <bcotton> that's a great point though. we should definitely see if we have someone we can emulate
14:57:21 <tg-fedmktg> <b​t0dotninja> I do a similar research about the ambassadors program
14:57:32 <x3mboy> But ambassadors are everywhere
14:57:45 <x3mboy> You can't say that about marketing
14:57:59 <x3mboy> e.g. Ubuntu marketing is done by Cannonical
14:58:05 <x3mboy> Not by volunteers
14:58:11 <x3mboy> Same with RedHat
14:58:28 <tg-fedmktg> <b​t0dotninja> OpenSuse?
14:59:12 <bcotton> #link
14:59:28 <bcotton> looks like they have two members if that page is up to date
14:59:33 <bcotton> so we win on that count :p
15:00:02 <tg-fedmktg> <b​t0dotninja> Ok, we are the best :D
15:00:43 <bcotton> i'll try to look through their content later and see what they actually accomplish
15:00:44 <bcotton> ooh
15:01:01 <bcotton> if we can come up with something, we should put together a proposal for flock to try to recruit more contributors
15:01:16 <bcotton> either as regular folks or at least as people who can feed us things to work from
15:01:39 <bcotton> i feel like we could get more out there if we had information. the hard part is having to go hunt down the things to talk about
15:02:26 <x3mboy> #action x3mboy will put the info on a ticket to follow up in the next 2 days?
15:02:32 <x3mboy> 2 days sounds good to you?
15:02:38 <x3mboy> Or it's too much?
15:04:07 <bcotton> what kind of follow up are you thinking?
15:04:27 <x3mboy> The research and a concrete definition based on the research
15:04:40 <bcotton> sounds good to me
15:05:02 <x3mboy> Cool
15:05:12 <x3mboy> So let's close this and let's research
15:05:13 <x3mboy> :D
