The Maemo Summit is a showcase for the Maemo community, so it’s important to get the word out.

We are looking for help, specially from those who have designing skills, but everybody can help

You can help us promote the event in several ways:

* Create cool promotion banners, web badges or flyers.
* Write about the summit on your website, and add the url here.
* Help in the Summit merchandise design.
* Add banners/web badges in your website, put flyers in your work place/university/user group.
* Join the Maemo Summit groups in social networks.
* Spread the word about the summit, among your friends and colleagues.

IMO, variety is good, we don't need to stick with a very strait image for the summit promotion material, this is a community event and a lot of people in the community have different tastes, so each one can use the banner/badge/whatever he/she likes more

If someone has more ideas for promote the event, please share these with us.

I'm planning on writing a blog post about the Summit to my personal blog (which is shared and syndicated on Twitter and Facebook), but I'm just not sure it fits under "Maemo Summit In the News".

Would posting it there still be fine, or would you like to separate professional news sources from the personal blogs?

Nah, it's fine, add your blog post there, this is about promotion/buzz, every small help is a big help.

From; http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=330030

"Call me crazy, but shouldn't you guys use a Nokia nXXX with a badge application as your badge? Did a quick Google search and came across no stories, so I guess it would be a first. Submit it to Hack-A-Day, Engadget (hah), Make, etc, nice publicity. Especially showing the badge app on the n900"

Any thoughts?
