Re: Summit on

Can we try an experiment?

Rather than the standard (rather sterile) press wire release, can we make something a lottle less formal, and use word-of-mouth? Have it on the website as an announcement, and send it around as an e-mail (which means it'll have to be a bit lighter than usual, and actually look like someone wrote it as an e-mail).

Just an idea, and since the summit (being a developers meeting) has very little mainstream press appeal, perhaps it's a good time to start playing with how we do communication.

Besides the text for the start page, what about a press release of some
sort that we can put it on the Web site and even distribute it to
journalists who cover tech?

That works - particularly if some of the Summit topics, i.e. performance
can give it some substance.


Let me look into this. Where can I find details (including summit
topics) of past and present summit information? And what should be the
focus of the release i.e. why is this summit important and how is it
different from the past ones? Sorry, new to the list so would need some
help in digging info.

Also, any ideas on: how many developers attended the summit in 2004, how
many are expected to attend this year and who the sponsors are?
