Last week from Tuesday until Friday(May 4-7, 2010), the city of Zaragoza and the Aragon Regional Government hosted our GNOME 3.0 Marketing Hackfest.
We had a really productive and busy week, working on the marketing plans and actions for launching GNOME 3.0.
The main subjects were:
GNOME 3 Website:
As Andreas already said, the goal is create a website with videos showing the new great and amazing things on GNOME 3, the new website will be more integrated with social networks, in this way we will have a dynamical content from user in social networks.
GNOME 3 Talking Points:
Yes, we compile everything cool (or the most) you should know about GNOME 3. I should confess I was a resistant old GNOME look and feel user(I love my GNOME panel), and working on the plans for launching the GNOME 3 was really convinced about all the changes. The new GNOME is amazing and it is more, much more than we can see.
The new Ambassadors project:
A new way to get more contributors at the project and spread the GNOME at the world. Our goal is provide all the infra for the new ambassadors, everyone will feel comfortable to talk about GNOME in conferences, universities and regional groups. Take look at our almost done draft http://live.gnome.org/Ambassadors
Video Story boards:
The story boards for new videos on the new GNOME 3 website were created. Now we just need to film then
