I have started my pilgrim mission. Gosh, it was not so
Indeed, last saturday I went to a french engineering school where I talked to the principal about fedora and
the fact to do in a first time a fedora project presentation to
very enthousiast to do it and told me that teachers could also be
our conversation, he gave me his visit card and I was a little bit embarassed
to give him mine cause I haven't got any fedora project
vist card on me. - Could the fedora project provide us visit cards or could
we print one based on a standard available on the fedora
project web site ? -
asked me where I can be reach at the fedora project. Then I had to
give him the email address coming from my company.
a little bit confused cause he did not understood why I gave him an e-mail
address having no relationship with the subject of our conversation. Ok, I can
admit that this kind of situation permit to explain deeper the base of Open
source and how the community works.
However, it was not so obvious to be convincing
when you are in face of peolple who they know nothing about open
little details can be really helpful.
Well, we talked more than
addition, he asked me some questions which I had some difficulties to
is structured the fedora project organization - in term of organizational
tree - ?
- Does it exist a program of partnership
between schools and fedora?
they use the reference "fedora project" in there school's presentation brochure
if they are interacting with the fedora community ?
so on and so for ...
Anyway, we have planned to do a presentation of fedora
-overview- to students as soon as I would have done my presentation slides
and an offcial have commited them.

@fedoraproject.org and experience
Concerning the last meeting!
We talked about
Among these, I think tchung pointed out that it would be good
that ambassadors could get @fedoraproject.org alias for emails.
was wondering if its possible to get it.
Secondly, I was among a group
of friends last night "marketing fedora core".
I found it very useful to
have a wallpaper with all the major websites listed onto it.
It is easily
when you have their eyes and mind glued on the topic "fedora core"
example, on my wallpaper there were 2 addresses
fedoraforum.org and fedoraproject.org.
when i was talking
about what is fedora and saying that this is an open source project.
pronounced the word "project" with me.
same happened to the word "forum"
when i said that the best way to get most of fedora
is having contact with
people on forums and mailing lists.
This was my little experience of
Ive enhanced my wallpaper and posted it on kde-looks.org
It would be nice if everyone
shares their experience as a fedora ambassador so that other
can learn from it.
