Subject Re: Volunteers wanted: Linuxworld Expo booth
Date Thu, 03 Jun 2004 15:55:22 GMT
Sander, thanks for organizing this. I think this will give the ASF
some great visibility.

(For the record, I've told Sander that I'm available for 10-2 on
Wed/Thu (and Friday too I guess), and that I can probably join
in on other slots that aren't filled by the time of the expo.)

How about we round up some graphic artists to help us make
some posters? I'm thinking we should come up with a list of
important issues and then incorporate them into the booth
materials (like posters, stickers, pamphlets, whatever) to help
us solidify our image. Here's a start:

0) What does the ASF do?
1) Solidify that we are a Non-Profit Corporation, not just a loose
conglomerate of nerds [sitting around in their boxers drinking gin]*.
2) Evangelize the Apache Software License (BSD-style vs. others)
3) How important is community-based open source software development
to the ASF?
4) How can people contribute? {time, money}
5) How can companies contribute? {people, money, hardware, services}
