Good morning, all. 

Pure Marketing stuff for you this morning!  Sponsored Media is beginning 
to pick up steam, but it could still use your help to get the word out 
(the marketing part). 

A couple of days ago, Sponsored Media was given some very valuable 
webspace [1], and it's beginning to pay off. 

We've shipped 6 sponsored discs in the last two days, which is just 
about as many as we have done since the beginning of the program. 

You can see from the May tracking page [2], that there are still many 
requests that need to be filled to get us on track for continual 

So, Please, continue to talk about Sponsored Media whenever you see a 
slight opening.  It doesn't have to be a sales pitch or anything 
spectacular.  Just toss the Sponsored Media link around [3] when you see 
anyone saying anything about ways to contribute to Fedora. 

You can also Digg the news about Sponsored Media. 

There is an article about Sponsored Media [4] already on Digg.com and 
could use some diggs to bring it out of obscurity. 

If you're not familiar with Digg.com, it's a system by which the 
community at large decides what's news and what's not.
