Maybe someone will be surprised finding my blog added to Planet GNOME, but, instead, I’m really happy to announce that I’m a member of the crew :)
I’m Flavia, I’m not exactly a new girls on the block, some of you maybe could have heard about me in Ubuntu, where I’m Ubuntu Women co-leader, and as shown by my name, I’m a member of the so-called “Italian conspiracy” :)
Why I’m here?
Because I’ve been accepted in OPW 2013 and I’ve asked to join GNOME marketing team :)
What can I offer to GNOME Community?
First of all, my passion, the great thrill to face a daily challenge together with a group of people who definitely are the avant-guard in FOSS; then, a 5 years experience as media relation coordinator in Ubuntu-it community.
It seems to me the two things sound good together :)
What can you expect from me?
To be contacted, probably :)
With Karen and Sri, my beloved tutors :) , we’ve planned, among other things, to explain better new features landing in GNOME 3.8, so, if you’re working on some interesting feature, probably you could find my nick knocking at your door on IRC :)
Moreover, I’m sorry for you, I’m very talkative woman, so you’ll have a lot of words from my pen to read, but I promised not to tease you too much with my life adventures, but with GNOME (and FOSS).
What do you expect from a marketing team new member? Which feature of GNOME as code and as community do you wish to be more enlightened? And…where are GNOME secrets garden to be explored?
As journalist I swear I never say a word about them :P (Ok, I’m a liar… I know)
Really now I DO thanks all the people who gave their trust in me, I thanks Sri, Karen and Allan, I wish their trust is well put back: the journey is just begun, and I really wish to be a great adventure for all.
And… one more thing, thank you very much for your everyday work: it’s really impressive and I hope to talk about it at my best
