I talked to Peter about starting a regular blog about XMPP use in
technology. Once every one or two weeks an article on how someone or
some company is making use of xmpp, about the libraries that exist,
interviews with their authors etc. I think that ... XMPP has a lot of
name recognition in the tech community, but that when you talk to
people they often shy away from it saying things like "oh I've thought
about doing something with xmpp, but I don't really know how to get
started".

Conference materials I think means something to hand out, or display
at conferences. Not so much who is giving talks. (buttons, brochures,
dongles)
