jendayo, Mike_F11:22
Mike_Fjenda:hey, up early today11:25
jendaMike_F: some memory at the back of my mind is telling me you were supposed to receive something from the post office - did that happen? :)11:26
Mike_Fjenda: yes i got them last week11:31
Mike_Fi thought that i ket you know i guess i forgot11:31
Mike_Fjenda: the posters are cool, did you design them?11:33
jendaMike_F: nah, you likely did let me know, and I forgot :)11:34
=== zerbero_2 [n=jga@p213.54.17.7.tisdip.tiscali.de] has left #ubuntu-marketing ["Konversation]
jendaI didn't - Hannes Pasqualini did, on my order :)11:34
Mike_Fi always liked the information highway concept for the internet11:35
Mike_Fjenda: what type of resources are available to let regular people know about ubuntu ?11:39
=== zerbero_1 [n=jga@p213.54.17.7.tisdip.tiscali.de] has joined #ubuntu-marketing
Mike_Fif there aren't any maybe that is something that I can help contribute to.11:44
Mike_FAt least from an (East Coast) American point of view11:45
jendaMike_F: that's a difficult question :)12:13
jendaMike_F: and it's the one question the MT is here to answer.12:13
jendaHowever... it's not simple ;)12:13
jendaThere is no way, I think, to let _regular_/average people know.12:13
jendaYou need some spark of interest on their side, first.12:13
jendaThat could be generated by outdoor advertising: posters, stickers, shirts, simply seeing the logo or the OS itself somewhere.12:26
jendaOnce you've got that, you need to be able to give them info on the pros and cons of using Ubuntu.12:26
jendaAnd lastly, you have to help them use it - that's documentation and support land, not marketing.12:27
Mike_Fjenda: true support is the keyword for what a consulting business is12:34
Mike_Feverything else is marketing12:34
Mike_Fas an engineer, marketing is something that i have learned from "the street"12:35
Mike_Fjenda: i am going to let some regular people know about ubuntu in Orlando Fla. at my chamber of commerce leads group12:48

beunoboredandblogging,  :D   congrats!04:28
boredandbloggingbeuno: thanks for the help04:53
beunoboredandblogging: you earned it, no help needed   :D04:53
loudmouthmanRight , whilst I await Daviey in the meeting , I want to go back to my question yesterday. Im interested in discussing how we can market Ubuntu to SMEs. Ive been doing OSS evengelism for the last 8 years to SMEs and now and it always seems to break down to Enterprise or Desktop . 05:04
loudmouthmanIm wondering if I have missed a core segment of the marketing statement that deals with engagement of SMEs or am i buzzwording <grin>05:05
boredandbloggingloudmouthman: what does an SME need thats not on the ubuntu server? I'm asking because I'm not really sure whats on the server edition exactly05:14
loudmouthmanoh im talking about Desktop delivery though. 05:14
loudmouthmanive actually got a few SMEs paying me to install or dual boot there machines and set them up, plus Jo Miller from Certain shops has had to be dropped in at the deep end and use it.05:15
loudmouthmanthe core issue is Business managers and Management Consultants dont like something they cant sell into ( e.g. OSS ) where as they can get traction and feel good factors from MS and Apple.05:16
boredandbloggingahh, I see05:17
loudmouthmanDown here in sunny sussex UK  I can sell IT support and Ubuntu Servers till the cows come home but selling Desktops is another matter. And pretty much all the case and conversations are based around Enterprise or Ma and Pa delivery. 05:18
loudmouthmanSo I am wondering about kicking off a Ubuntu SME delivery project to get the conversation going about SME delivery and implementation 05:29

jendajuliux: I have info from Hannes08:27
juliuxjenda, cool08:27
nixternalI know you are...pathetic...makes me want to use efnet instead!08:27
jendaIt should be feasable to make A0 posters... I mean, the fonts are resisable, and the illustration should have enough resolution.08:28
jendaThe bigger a poster, the less dpi it needs... an A0 does not need more than 100-150 dpi to look good.08:28
jendaI'll check if I can export a pdf with max resolution... 08:28
jendaThat was a quote ^08:28
nixternalI want my cloak to say @debian/ubuntu/fsf/member/pdpc.whatever.active/nixternal08:28
