Here's the slides from the Panopoly talk I gave at DrupalSouth.

 

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?

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:

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. On balance, I'd say Storify is a pretty nifty web app.

This post is very long, mostly cos it has lots of pix, embedded vids of each of the the keynotes and is interspersed with tweets and other snippets about the conference. Hopefully, it gives a taste of the event and the fun that was had.

Graph showing role of DDU2011 attendees

A couple of people have asked about the kinds of people likely to go to Drupal Downunder.

So we dug into the stats from DDU2011 and discovered that 71% of people registered on the site identified themselves as Developers.

We've very actively tried to expand the appeal of Drupal Downunder to attract the broader Drupal community too.
