Really? I live in the Boston area and a substantial number of other 
folks who work on Fedora live here as well. Red Hat has an office in the 
area as does Novell. The GNOME summit was a couple weekends ago in 
Cambridge, and next weekend there is going to be FOSS Camp in Cambridge 
as well, on MIT's campus. So I am not sure that it is fair to say the 
communities in eastern Massachusetts don't know anything about Linux any 
more so than other areas of Massachusetts. Then again it depends what 
you mean by "community" -

What target audience are you looking to reach? Since you appear to not 
be particularly concerned about Fedora for this, you might want to get 
in touch with the Boston LUG group: http://blu.org/
