Welcome to the group. This list hasn't been very active lately, but with
the new board and some new goals I think you'll see some movement here in
the next couple months - stay tuned!

Subject: [Marketing] Hello Fellow *Evil* Marketers
Tyler Mitchell asked me to say hello since I had expressed an interest in
helping to market FOSS/OSGeo wares. At FOSS4G last week, much discussion
was made on how to fold new types of people into the OSGeo camp and how to
"package" the communtiy's offerings to the outside world -- without
trouncing on its history and ethic. Not an easy task.
I'm one of those *evil* marketers who at times can get verbose and
ridiculous trying to inform people of service/products. But I also have
seen the great value and opportunities in FOSS and have a genuine interest
in what is possible because of it. My employer is Aerial Services, Inc.
(ASI), a mid-sized aerial orthoimagery acquirer and mapping firm based in
Iowa. We are a prime contractor on many Federal, State, and Local projects
and there is a good chance you have unknowing used our data sometime down
the line. Anyway, we use FOSS in our internal and external client project
management workflow and know it is powerful. My goal here is to checkout
the OSGeo "marketing" landscape and see if I can assist the community with
my skill set (see LinkedIn for more details).
I am looking forward to chatting with you all!
