Evangalism peeps (and Balazs),

I thought I'd pass this along, its one of the emails I've received from Ektron (a commercial CMS) about their upcoming annual conference. I thought it was interesting as I've never seen anything similar produced for Plone and the Plone conferences or symposiums. I thought it might be an interesting thing to use as a starting point for similar emails for the Plone Conf. Points such as 4 & 8 below are items that I think we need to perhaps promote more (as opposed to tech/ develop stuff which we are already very good at).
