To market, to market...

My apologies for arriving a little late to the party. 
 
Thanks to the latest DrupalEasy podcast I've just read these 2 articles on Drupal Marketing, and most of the comments. 
I was also lucky enough to be present in London to hear Dries' call to the faithful to step up our marketing efforts and really help Drupal succeed.
 
There's been some attention paid to business focussed events, and the creation and collation of "marketing materials". But how much attention is being paid to the market itself?

Drupal Association Elections

Submitted by donna on 3 February, 2012 - 21:44

I'm running for election as an "At Large" board member of the Drupal Association.

"Meet the candidates" forums were scheduled so members of the Drupal community could ask questions of the nominees.  We were all asked to do a brief introduction, then respond to questions either by voice, or by IRC, and then were all asked to make a final statement. 

Rather than adding to the already lengthy wiki summary of the candidate meetings, I'm posting the edited version of my responses here instead.  See the full IRC transcript, and others summaries here:

My formal candidate statement is here:
https://association.drupal.org/node/14388

Further information on the election, as well as details on voter eligibility, and how to vote is here:

Storify Drupal Downunder 2012

Submitted by donna on 29 January, 2012 - 15:57

Playing about with Storify for the first time as a way of shaping the post event report for Drupal Downunder. It claims to have an export to Drupal site feature (or tumblr, or wordpress, or posterous or mailchimp) but I couldn't get that to work. Instead - I've used the embed code.
