Garland Binns opened this week with a suggestion for keyword optimization for our web site.<ref>http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/marketing/2010-April/012579.html</ref> This was warmly welcomed. From Portugal, Nelson Marques did a comparison on youtube search results for Fedora<ref>http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/marketing/2010-April/012596.html</ref>. Was a good reflexion on how some people do things for Fedora without even bein part of the project.

We got back to the change from LiveCD to LiveDVD with a message form Jonathan Nalley<ref>http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/marketing/2010-April/012597.html</ref>. He pointed out how this was seen by the news. This is actually a lack of consistency that we need to fix. News doesn't have to be dull, Mel Chua pointed the winners of the "We're Linux" video contest hosted by Linux Fundation<ref>http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/marketing/2010-April/012603.html</ref>.

We had plenty of sprints and content done, some of the with help from students at Allgheny. AS one example of this, Hannah Kowen gave the final touchs to the BTRFS Feature Profile<ref>https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Btrfs_in_Fedora_13</rev>.

Gerard Braad is looking how to get Chinese marketing<ref>http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/marketing/2010-April/012634.html</ref>. He will be traveling and would like to improve the participation from the Chinese community and also see how marketing team can do better for them.

"As you probably know, I've been hanging around Fedora for a few years now. I helped improve the events that Fedora attends by creating the Fedora EventBox. It's been going really well, but this week, I saw a big improvement because of just a few people at SxSW. I would like to thank Mo, Emily, Spot, Jared and anyone else who helped make the booththere awesome!
  
Probably the most important thing for Marketing Team was the Joe "Zonker" Brockmeier IRC Classroom. Mel Chua posted the log for this Fedora Classroom at the list<ref>http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/marketing/2010-April/012667.html</ref>, This is part of a effort to buid skill within the Marketing Team, and there are more classes to come.

Adam Williamson is becoming a valuable team member by helping as bridge between QA team and Marketing team. He pointed out a very confusing news<ref>http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/marketing/2010-April/012673.html</ref> regarding a Ubuntu memory leak issue, that may be misinterpreted as Red Hat/Fedora related. We should be informed and ready to clarify this. The other mail from Adam was asking for hel promoting Test Day<ref>http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/marketing/2010-April/012696.html</ref>. It is recommended that you take a look to his blog<ref>http://www.happyassassin.net/2010/04/27/incoming-test-days-preupgrade-and-xfce/</ref>.

But there's more we can do with this, and that's where I think the value lies.  For one, it is cool that each participant get's a nice little card printed right there with a QR code so they can go retrieve it. But it would also be nice to let them share their photos on social networking sites like Facebook, identi.ca, foursquare, twitter, etc. I can also see gaining contributors from this concept, in that they are now 'part' of Fedora's legacy.   Maybe having them show up on the FedoraProject front page when an event is happening?  I seriously think that this is stuff that everyone in Fedora would love."

SxSW photobooth awesomeness and its future

Clint Savage discussed[1] strategies for making the "SxSW photobooth awesomeness and its future" more universal to FAmNA events.

"As you probably know, I've been hanging around Fedora for a few years now. I helped improve the events that Fedora attends by creating the Fedora EventBox. It's been going really well, but this week, I saw a big improvement because of just a few people at SxSW.

But there's more we can do with this, and that's where I think the value lies. For one, it is cool that each participant get's a nice little card printed right there with a QR code so they can go retrieve it. But it would also be nice to let them share their photos on social networking sites like Facebook, identi.ca, foursquare, twitter, etc. I can also see gaining contributors from this concept, in that they are now 'part' of Fedora's legacy. Maybe having them show up on the FedoraProject front page when an event is happening? I seriously think that this is stuff that everyone in Fedora would love."
