Re: Use cases behind CIP story

Hi Agustin

I think this is an extremely helpful post.

Why don't we start bring the stories of "Linux in the civil infrastructures in the world" together, and start a series of blog posts at the CIP website?

If people/companies are willing to contribute the stories, I would be more than happy to set up a blog section to the CIP web.
I would be very interested in hearing & promoting the use cases regardless of members and non-members. 

Then, we can talk about those stories at the events we are participating in.

CIP is doing a significant effort to be present in many events to explain what are the motivations and goals of the group. The technical activity is about to start so there is very little to show and it will be the case for some time.

What can we focus on the coming months from the communication point of view?

I think there is a huge value in advertising the use cases that justify the commitment from companies like Toshiba, Hitachi and Siemens in CIP.

Some of those use cases are completely unknown for a wide range of developers, even many of those who are "Open Source veterans".

By exposing some of the challenges involved in those use cases CIP would not just provide a meaningful inside about our environment but also the opportunity to have a fruitful conversation with many of those engineers who might think that CIP idea of a Super Long Term Support kernel (system) is "anti-cultural".

So I would like to encourage CIP main drivers to provide and advertise some of those unique use cases. I find them extremely interesting. I hope many others will too.
