Hi all - just been thinking. I tried to get a fundraising thing to
happen at OSCON, to match the fundraising thing from RailsConf, and it
really didn't get as far as I hoped it would. I didn't capture the
imagination and excitement of the participants. In fact most people
didn't even know it was happening. Chad's fundraising at RailsConf was
much more successful, and it happened A) because everybody knew about
it, and B) because people got excited about it. I think the keys to
making something like this succeed are excitement and participation.
I'm just wondering about that. It's kind of the (yikes) marketing side
of the whole equation.
