Subject Re: "Ask me about apache" badges at ApacheCon

I think this is a great idea. More noticeable would be tshirts, but more expensive of course.

You can certainly count me in on any of these kinds of ideas. Your suggested wording is fine,
possibly "Ask me about the Apache Community" but more letters means smaller text (ideal if
we can find t-shirt budget).

we'd get some lanyard badges made up with something like "Ask Me About Apache" on them. Apache
Members and involved committers would be invited to pick up the badge and wear it, and we'd
hopefully get takeup from all the comdev people there, and some others. Those of us wearing
the badge are then fair game for people interested in getting futher involved in the foundation
to ask questions on the process.
