A Note

Please add all your ideas to this wiki page. Having ideas in the mailing list archives is good, but it's much better to have a compilation in the wiki for easy reference.

Hosting a Worldwide Event

  • Set up a venue in each country, or even several venues per country
  • Link all of those with video conferencing
  • If it's multinational, talk about something multinational, e.g. localisations

Do a Countdown

  • Count down the days to our anniversary (October 13th) from OOoCon on
  • Issue something every week, e.g.
    • Monday: business case
    • Friday: community insight
  • use videos


  • Encourage magazines to have a special 10-year-anniversary isuse
    • BrOffice magazine
    • Ubuntu FullCircle
    • Free Software Magazine
  • Make interviews with the community (Charles Schulz currently does some)
