I think that's a great idea Karen, and am wiling to help in any way I can-

I agree with that! I was thinking that it could be good for us to put a
solid current GNOME presentation on our website that we can link to and
post around the internet, more like a sales presentation for those who
don't know what we do. Then we'd also have the slides and be ready to go
for in person presentations like what we're talking about here. It would
also be good for ambassadors to have, if we can get that program going too

Once we had it we could add updating it to our tasks in releasing new
versions. (Though I'm thinking of this as something that's not release
specific necessarily, as Stormy gets at too, but it would really need to
be kept current).

Would anyone be interested in starting to put that together from existing
presentations? We're generating content for the annual report too, so the
more people the better (we've got a heavy load)! I can work on it too, of
course, and I'd be happy to be the face of it if others think that's a
good idea (though I'd love it if someone else wanted to do it too) but it
would be great to have a marketing team polished presentation :)

Also, we had an Code-in student put together a GNOME talks page at,which we could combine with the
Marketing wiki.

I love Sri's effort to be coordinated on conferences, we should
collectively try to be present at as many of the major ones as we can.
