    If you weren't invited to MP by a friend, how would you learn about the existence of the site? Is the iPad promo being advertised? Have there been news stories or press?

    Randy is going a tour of various cities promote to MP. The details have not yet been released.

    It would be cool if Randy would publish his promo tour cities on MP. If he's stopping in my area, I'd like to see/hear how MP is being promoted. Plus, I'm sure he would love to have some support from current MPers in those cities.

    I'm sure he'll make them well known in advance and I'm equally certain that all current and potential Milepointers will be encouraged to meet him and perhaps enjoy a beverage or two at the same time. :)

    I'm looking forward to meeting 'The Boss" at the FTU in April. Hopefully this means there will be a bunch of seminars around the country. I'm sure the seminars will bring a bunch of new members

    I'm willing to make my husband stroll around a Brisbane shopping mall wearing a sandwich board in exchange for an iPad 2!

    Other than the masses of us who came through FT I have neither seen nor read anything about MP at all. It would be nice to know about the plan. We might even be able to help.

    I'd rather not be selling anything until we are clear what we are doing!! Actually I wanted to make sure we were 100% go with the current software platform and the good news is that its Gold Release will be on Tuesday March 8th. We'll put it though it's paces on the dev platform before installing but at least that will be out of the way and then I really want to make sure we actually have great content in the development before tooting our horn too much. We still have some work left on the Newbies forum to put into place and as well a final audit on some of the test ideas and the wiki program (sticky vs. wiki for information organization—to be consistent from forum to forum) and then a better organized forum tree. I'd rather not grow too much unless the current membership is being well-served. So while sandwich boards may well be the way we go (we can borrow some from the airline striking employees over the past years, they must have those stored somewhere!), I'm always a fan of our members passing along the word if they believe in what we have is good enough. And if it isn't, then we should not grow at all.

    Thanks for that. We appreciate how busy things are, and I, at least, favor being stable before pushing too hard. In the meantime we are all having a ball. thanks for that too.

    Totally OT, but I've noticed that Randy (whazzit today?) has replaced his Avatar with something more hip, younger looking, user friendly, etc..

    J/k Randy. ;)

    I learned about MP on another board (Hottalk on Yuku) with a small group of travel devotees (but not all are Frequent Flyers, but we do have fun, come on over) I also saw mention of the iPad giveaway on Gadling on Tuesday the 8th.
     
  17. Learned about the board from a tweet by Gary Leff.
