I don't see why it wouldn't be as good an option to get a bit of press
and stir up some attention by showing off what we are working on as
doing articles. I certainly think we should do both, and let's amass a
digg army to flood the web with Fedora information. It's one thing to
have the information, it's a complete other problem to get the
information spread. So far we've seemed to just put in on the wiki and
hope people would pick up on it, we need to be more proactive in
promoting our coolness. 

I blogged about the lack of selfworth we seem to have a while back, we
don't tell people about all our cool developments, if we aren't proud of
and vocal about our work why should the users or the press be?
