Hello Apache community:

I would like to piggy-back on Eric's introduction as well. I am a 
worldwide Marketing Manager for IBM Collaboration Solutions, with primary 
responsibility for our Lotus Notes, Lotus Domino, and Office Productivity 
Solutions, including Lotus Symphony. I am based in sunny San Diego :-)

I and my colleague Jyoti Bagaria, also a marketing manager based in 
Bangalore India, are also looking at ways to support the marketing efforts 
for Apache OpenOffice. Although I could not join the kickoff call today 
that Eric Otchet hosted, I will be attending future calls where possible, 
and collaborating with you all through the Wiki and whatever other tools 
we decide will help us successfully market Apache OpenOffice.

Looking forward to our future discussions.

Subject:        Introduction


My name is Eric Otchet and I am the product manager for IBM Lotus 
Symphony. I've been managing the Symphony activities within IBM since 2007 
and also manage our Lotus Smartsuite product. I've been at IBM for 23 
years and over that time I've had technical, sales and product management 

I've been working behind the scenes with the developers from IBM working 
on the project and with the upcoming release of Apache OpenOffice 3.4 
coming ... I thought it was time to step out of the shadows and help with 
the marketing efforts. 

I have access to some IBM tools that we can use to help us manage the 
activities around the release. 

I'll send another email with [propose] in the subject line with some 
additional information. 

I look forward to working with the community and helping to rejuvenate the 
marketing efforts in the community.
