This is from a friend, Bala Pillai, in Australia. Probably some of you
might understand the context better than I do. FN

Anpulla Singapore Anbu,
Mikka nandri for such rapid translation work on this monumental success by
Singapore-based Prabu on the 100% Tamil Computer OS. With your deed, you add
to our collective online collaboration successes and help extinguish the
unprofessional voices of despair, excuses and hopelessness that many like to
echo ad nauseaum.
Can I suggest a little incremental effort-great gain initiative?
I reminded Harish Pillay, the President of Singapore Linux User Groups to
prominently feature this at the Linux conference next month in Singapore -
see http://www.lugs.org.sg . And to rope in the Singapore Tamil press for
this newsworthy release. And aim the publicity to get lots more Tamil youth
in Singapore to provide mind resources for continued Tamil Linux/Tamildom
Everyware work. Harish had already asked the organising committee to do so.
Now chances are the Organising Committee is pressed for time, and is nowhere
as action-passionate (understandably so), priority-wise about Tamil Linux as
Prabu, you and me are. Thus:-
(a) phone Prabu and Harish and the three of you meet up
(b) let Tamil Murasu Kunalan know 100% Tamil Linux OS (mention that I asked
you to contact him)
(c) work out with Harish or his nominee, how best it can be featured at the
Linux Conference - perhaps he can point some Tamil computing students nodal
relationships at NUS/Nantech to assist you
(d) online assist Chennai Maharajan as he comes to grips with how
significant this is and how big of a step it is in our direction towards
(e) load up your document onto the Files Section of Erumbugal and make every
Tamil group on and off the Net aware of it. While mentioning that it will be
one of the highlights at the Singapore Linux conference (offer this added
publicity for the conference as a carrot to get the organisers to agree),
send out emails and get someone in the locality to phone follow-up with
press folks. In particular Tamil press bridges like Chennai Dr Bose,
Dinakaran Vanangamudi, Manorama Press etc Sivalingam, Hindu Biz IT Murali,
Vikatan Vaasan, Colombo Jeyatheepan, Toronto Giritharan (I have more
relationships -- mention my name and you will have greater response cos I
have earned my track record). Perhaps you can find someone in Erumbugal or
prospect one to be our PR point man/woman in Chennai.
Do above, keep Erumbugal posted and I will suggest more connections,
processes and steps. And while doing this, you will be building valuable
relationships for your and Tamil's future as well as learning by doing the
power and foibles of strategic online <--> offline collaboration.
p.s. if you want PR success, be thick-skin :-)
