Would it be worthwhile to create a pamphlet for Ambassadors that
invites potential writers at Linux or FOSS events?
I'd think we would need to spell out what we're looking for in terms
of (1) collaboration, and (2) openness to assignment. Also what we
can provide in editorial talent.
Does this sound interesting at all?
I think this could be a fun way to encourage more writers to the
Magazine. I think OSDC does something similar when they go to events in
North America. If we wanted to ask for something to compare to or to get
feedback on, we could try opening a thread with some of the OSDC team to
get their perspective on that.
But generally, I think this is a good idea and I would like to see it
happen. Especially for some of the events that are being fit into the
current FAmNA event strategy for the past year or two, this is an easier
contribution method where we could have a high impact. However, I would
encourage us to open dialogue with the Marketing and Design teams for
+1 from me on the idea. I don't think I'll have the cycles to contribute
copytext or look over anything until mid-June, but around then, I would
be more available to help with something like this. I guess the main
priority for now is to get the copy done, and then we can start working
with the Design Team on producing this.
