Re the marketing plan, i also came up with the idea of creating awareness
to the public on what SugarLabs is doing. Because most of them believe that
Sugar only runs on xos.

So Dave and I created a motion which will get potentially users,
Developers, parents, teachers to know more about Sugar; how sugar works.
Social media is also one of the major way to draw attention down to Sugar.
So we then to draw inspiration from Scratch foundation. See link below!
