I would suggest that the question goes beyond marketing. It is about 
purpose as well. What makes AOO worth spending time on, as opposed to 
any other similar project?

Perhaps you might start by asking those who have been involved in AOO 
and OpenOffice.org what attracted them in the past, and why or why not 
the same attractions still exist.

For that matter ask why people have NOT chosen AOO. I know that could 
get contentious, of course. But why, for example, is AOO almost totally 
unrepresented in ODF Authors, when much of its work applies as much to 
AOO as any project?
