Random ideas that we don't want to forget

IDEAS

STUFF THAT AN APAC COMMUNITY ARCHITECT COULD DO

  • japan intelligence
  • china intelligence
  • apac university tour (interns/contributors)
  • local events
  • knowing which ones matter
  • creating them if necessary
  • apac ambassador summit -- lca 2009??

BIG SHOWS IN APAC

  • india -- foss.in, linux asia
  • japan -- ? (warren, harish)
  • china -- linux foundation event (eugene?)
  • apac -- AOSSS (funded by japanese government)
  • singapore -- singapore linux conf (99,00,01,03, now dead)

METRICS

  • who is participating, project by project?
  • how do we drive those numbers?
  • what does it mean to participate?
  • patches from outside, bugzilla/trac usage?

TIEMANN

  • development -> test -> production.
  • make d -> t faster, better.
  • make p have fewer problems, supportable and scalable.
  • community consulting in d, t drives value and makes revenue in p acceptable.
  • otherwise, p is a commodity and we lose.
  • leverage open source in non-differentiating areas.

OTHER

  • podcasts/tv/etc in local languages
  • localized spins at every show
  • publications (again localized)
  • ambassadors newsletter
  • local language portals for ambassadors
  • ambassador business cards

SALES STUFF

  • revenue vs. bookings
  • gross margin
  • single year bookings
  • gross margins -- software vs. services

RANDOM WISDOM

  • knock down barriers
  • infrastructure of participation
  • weekend projects
  • sustainability of models
