[Marketing] Marketing Meeting

Tyler thought I should join the marketing committee so we could talk
about OSGEO presence at OSCON in Portland this year. I've represented
OSGEO in this capacity for the last two years.
Since AutoDesk isn't sponsoring a booth this year, I thought I'd get
creative and see what we could come up with.
IBM sponsors a booth for PSU every year, usually. Bart Massey from our
CS dept is in charge of it (and, incidentally, Goog SOC), and he gets
student volunteers to staff the booth and talk about OS at PSU. Also,
Oregon State's Open Source Labs (OSL) is usually at that booth. This
year Bart has agreed, over lunch today, to have us focus on open source
GIS. So I will help corral some students and we'll talk about our
web-mapping products. I assume we'll put up the OSGEO banner and have
Tim Welch from EcoTrust has also offered to help. He was one of our PSU
student volunteers last year, and now has a real job doing development
using most OSGEO tools. (maybe he should be a case study).
Anyway... I think a BOF where we show off some cool apps, maybe do some
lighting talks would be nice. Perhaps OSGEO could pay for some food or
drink for that, and rent a projector...
And a pass to the conference that we could all share would be a nice perk!
