Outreach and Evangelism

Outreach works two ways, outbound and inbound:

  • Outbound: We'll ping organizations and their email lists to let them know that our effort exists and to direct them to the public website, email list and discussion list, as well as the W3C/Schema.org effort
  • Inbound/content marketing: People can come to our public website and learn more about the effort there.  There will be wonderful examples and the like in the near future.  

Outreach may go into a few lists. This isn't done yet, but just an idea as the list gets longer. The early stages would be just to the first group, seeking validation of our properties.

      Thanks, Uma.  I brought them in up above.  And the good news is that the list is now long enough that it may need to be split into categories.
