Subject: re: [relax-ng] marketing
Message text written by Michael Fitzgerald >I think we can do more marketing than we are doing now. <<<<<< Mike, Here's another stellar idea - frankly I think that post 9/11 and the XML bubble bursting - F2F conferences are a dead duck. Attendence is in the hole. I've had great success with online Webinars however - and attendence is strong. I believe I could line up something with Intellor.com (nice outfit, good people). They'd need some sponsorship to cover the modest $$ - a guess here - we could get Sun and XML Global and OASIS between them to sponsor it. Then we line up 3 sessions. Executive level "Why RELAX?", standards story - go forward, support, future, ISO, etc; then implementation level "Where can I benefit from RELAX - Business Use Cases", and then finally "RELAX together" - hands-on live demo's of tools. We pitch the heck out of this on XML-dev, the comics, and zines, etc. Then we record those sessions and put them available from our site for prosperity. If I can get volunteers to do the sessions - and this sounds like a great idea - I'll get the sponsorship covered - and then all we need to do is pick a date.... Cheers, DW. p.s. Intellors webinar software works from any PC and dial-up worldwide.
