Marketing ideas for SCALE in Los Angeles (and beyond)

Hi all!

SCALE (the Southern California Linux Expo) is coming up in a week in
Los Angeles, and if it's anything like last year, we're going to see a
few thousand people come through the expo hall during Fri-Sun.

Apart from OSCON, this is probably the biggest event that we attend on
the West coast (and perhaps in the US overall), and I thought that all
of you might have some good suggestions regarding marketing
strategies. Of course, brainstorming new ideas is relevant for other
upcoming conferences as well :-)

Each of these topics is probably worthy of its own discussion thread,
so I'm going to send out 4 emails. I hope your inboxes can take the
load... :P

Topics:


* ORGANIZING VOLUNTEERS

* LIBREOFFICE FOR ANDROID

* UPGRADING LIBREOFFICE/OPENOFFICE

* DOCUMENT FREEDOM DAY

ORGANIZING VOLUNTEERS

At SCALE I'm going to be collecting names and email addresses for
everyone who's interested in
- Contributing to LibreOffice in one of our teams
- Participating in a Hackfest or LibreFest
- Corporate sponsorship of events (e.g. hackfest)
- Marketing/outreach of LibreOffice in their local community
- Helping to represent LibreOffice at a future conference

=> Are there any other categories I should include on the sign-up sheet?

As I've mentioned previously, I think that some kind of tool for
helping to keep track of LibreOffice/TDF-associated people would be
great (CiviCRM?). This structure would also be helpful for
coordination with our local TDF chapters/partner organizations around
the world.

I just had a great idea: stickers that say something like "Proud
LibreOffice volunteer". We could hand them out at a conference for
those people who have contributed to the project in some way. Just
like the "I Voted" stickers that you see (in the US, at least), it
could have a great visual impact on motivating people to take the
first steps of participation.

Sounds as an interesting and easy to realize idea.
If you want it at SCALE  there's not much time left, but it doesn't have
to be prefect the very first time, does it?

Cheers,
Cor

Hi :)
How about "Tastic LibreOffice person" but replace "Tastic" with whatever
kids say about something they think is great.  Back in my day in one place
i lived everyone said "Tastic" about pretty much anything after a while but
at first it had been only for truly awesome things like setting fire to the
telly or some other explosion the grown-ups would definitely not have been
happy with.
Regards from
Tom :)
