Hi all,

I need some creativity from you all. I've been asked by the UK linuxuser
magazine people if I know anyone who could write technical tutorials (eg
installing a L.i.f.e thin-client setup) of about 2000 words for them.

There might be some payment but that's not a given - they have to eat

So, we must have people in our community who, maybe with some writing
help from us, could do this. How do we contact them? Does anyone have
any ideas? I could obviously blog, or ask on -project, but I would like
to hear your thoughs too.

And if any of you would be willing to work with a techie on such an
article, doing some editing and working on wording etc, step up now :D

for Life I would ask 3 persons

1. Lars Vogdt
2. Jan Weber
3. Jigish Gohil

It was just an example, there are plenty more... Where and how could we best
ask if people are interested in writing such articles?

This is one of the priorities we discussed last week at our BoF and we
really need to go out into the community and over a long period of time
seek out qualified folks who can write succh articles.

For starters, I would suggest we go ahead and post on the -project
mailing list. There's plenty of people there whith hidden talents to
write that aren't making themselves known yet.

And later down the line, we can look at other places, including even the
support mailing list and forums, which most of us aren't on but those
folks certainly see enough "repetition of material" to come forth and
write a few articles of their own.

Not just for this magazine, but for many other publications as well.
Let's get that Writer's Army going! :-)
