Subject [jira] Updated: (HBASE-1328) Evangelize HBase in Media
Date Sat, 18 Apr 2009 17:33:15 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1328?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

stack updated HBASE-1328:
-------------------------

    Priority: Critical  (was: Major)

I made this issue 'critical', rather than 'major', since its a means to broader community
-- broad community is what hbase needs to be successful.

Other comments:

Lars also suggested that we work on the home page and on the wiki layout to clean them up
and make them more presentable.  In particular, he suggested -- which I liked -- that on the
home page that we link to use case, descriptions of how hbase is being used in deployment.
 These use cases would include detail and most importantly, why hbase is being used rather
than some other tech (Lars also made the point that we shouldn't be about hbase being only
possible soln., just about why it in particular works in the described use case).

Lars also suggested that we should choose a few stats that we might want to monitor over time
as fit criteria for how well we're doing on this issue such as mentions in blogosphere, numbers
on irc channel, mailing list numbers, etc.

> We need to spread the word more on HBase to advance adoption. 
> I took the first step and create a HBase Twitter account that talks about itself as it
"sees" itself being mentioned on the intertubes. Here the URL:
> http://twitter.com/HBase
> We should discuss further means of a combines effort given our limited advertisement
budget.
> While I created the account for Twitter, I suggest we share the details and set the email
address to a central account, so that more than one person can post updates. BTW, other projects
on Apache.org follow the same approach, so this is more or less a working concept. And avoids
someone else hogging the HBase account name.
