I have noticed on several occassions that users in the Netherlands and Germany have actively promoted RISC OS to the public. Why do I have the impression this simply doesn't happen in Britain, the birthplace of RISC OS and the place where the most users reside? It seems to keep to itself. Are you going to wear membership tags on the just-us gatherings? It should be open to all! It is crucial for the platform to promote itself, something RO Ltd and Castle should invest more time in. I know certain forms of advertisements are expensive, but that is a lame excuse. There are so many alternatives to actively promote it. Music events, local computer clubs, shows like the HCC mentioned in this article, the internet in general, etc. There is more interest in alternative OS's then ever before! I have spent a lot of time altering and updating articles on Wikipedia to reflect the current state in the World of RISC OS and extend awareness. The overall impression being the platform is dead is an invitation for us to change that view. Have you noticed how many old gents are wandering around on RO events? That is not a critisism, but a sign.

Think creative.
