For some background, the main marketing project I had on my plate this past
year has been to develop some various material - mostly for hardcopy output
This project is 90% complete, awaiting also a final wrap-up delivery of all
contents combined and an overview guide showing off each component, likely
in the next week or so. Until then:
Then we'll get a couple things printed for distribution, and others
on-demand, e.g. for local chapters.
Once I've got all the final files, I'd like to make them customisable
through a web interface - so they can be translated and resized, but then
also output as PDF for people to print in their locale.
That's what's on my plate - we haven't discussed the idea of tech demo, etc.
on this list so far, but it is a good idea and I'd gladly add it as one of
our active projects if there is enough traction. I'm sure there are enough
of us here to give feedback :)
