Essentially, "creating buzz." This is something that other
distributions are good at, by making sure the general blogosphere
contains many hits on the stories they like. So coordinating and
buttressing information by linking to them from our many members'
existing web presence. Individuals all leveraging their social
networking memberships similarly.

I think this should be a topic for discussion at the Marketing
meeting. Jack, what do you think?
At first glance this schedule looks quite good. I think the messaging
for features needs to be prioritized a little more in the 3rd/4th
months since by the time we get to 5th month we're already into Beta
time frame and everyone else is starting to talk about our features in
their distros. ;-)
