[Marketing] Marketing meeting

I can meet later, but not earlier.  If you are interested in joining  
then I think it would be wise to restart our timezone rotation - not  
necessarily tomorrow - every other meeting switching the timezone...  
unless someone somewhere actually likes meeting at midnight or 6am  
all the time :)

Then it's fine and understood that you will likely miss two or three  
out of ten meetings.  It would be refreshing to have a few more of  
you joining.  Daniele in Japan and you guys down under make  
accommodating that general timezone helpful for a few folks.

Here's the meeting planner with our main timezones.  I'm sure I  
missed someone though..

So, for tomorrow, it's too late to probably change the time this  
week, but for sure next week might be doable.  I'll come online  
tomorrow and see if we're on :)  I am hoping to take holidays next  
week though.
