Self Introduction

Greetings everyone,

I am new to the mailing list.  I use Libreoffice a lot.  I spend most
times scripting tasks for Libreoffice via the PyUNO API.  I have been
promoting the App at work already -- most people here are familiar with
proprietary applications.  What's funny is that their proficiency-
levels in the use Office Applications suggest that they're better off
with LibreOffice.  They're tough to convince

I am in Nigeria.  I use Linux (Fedora) and I am a promoter of open-
source technologies.  I also lecture in a State University.  Its my
pleasure to spread Libreoffice.
I am open to ideas

Regards
Onyeibo

Re: Self Introduction

Hi Oyeibo,

Welcome to the community! I'm Mike, working in Marketing for TDF, and
doing some community outreach to help the project to grow (along with
the software itself).

Thanks very much for your help with promoting LibreOffice and spreading
the word. At the moment I'm working on a map of LibreOffice community
members, which links to interviews that I've done:

http://newdesign.libreoffice.org/contributor_map.html

As you can see, we have some rather large gaps in north America, Africa,
parts of Asia etc. So it'd be great to show that we have LibreOffice
supporters there. If you have a spare 20 minutes, could I send you a few
questions please, to put up a short interview about your involvement
with LibreOffice?

That would be awesome, but no worries if you're super busy though!

Cheers,
Mike

Re: Self Introduction

Dear Onyeibo,

Welcome to the community. As a lecturer in State University you could do a lot by encouraging the next generations to use the LibreOffice and feel the freedom. It will be great if you could get an idea on how much the LibreOffice is prominent among the youngsters in your State University and why (in both cases if they are using and not using). Moreover, you could encourage a small smart group of students to promote the ideals of LibreOffice.

@Mike. Good effort Mike. The map looks beautiful and amazing work.


Sincerely,
Sreekanth V K

Hi,

Here is my advice.

Help start a local commercial, for profit, operation capable of selling
support and migration services for LibreOffice.

Take full advantage of the product LibreOffice, which the shared
development has made available, and build on that work to help raise the
wealth of those directly involved and general population of Nigeria.

Such an organization would create a sustainable organization which could,
along with the local benefits, build the ability to offer back to wider
LibreOffice community in a serious and significant way.

Best wishes,

Drew
