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've just written a letter to the Minister for Transport. By hand, on paper.  As soon as I transcribe what I wrote there, here, I'll put it in an envelope, address it, stick a stamp on it, and wander down to the post box and hope the lovely  people of Australia Post will deliver it to Canberra by Tuesday.

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.
