[Marketing] Re: [Foss4g2008loc] FOSS4G 2008 in the media

We have a list of potential places to do releases to:

But to prevent repeat sends to the same places, we'd like to know which ones are already going to be receiving the press release. So please make any notes to this mailing list so we all know. Is there a list somewhere else already?

The release did go to the OSGeo marketing list last week, I didn't get any feedback so I hope it went to your whole media list. Did it?

We discussed it at our meeting and there was the question I was just asking you - where else did it go? So that we didn't spend time duplicating effort or looking unorganised while repeat sending.

It's unclear to me if/which outlets have been approached, are they in this page? Or is that just a copy of our marketing page.


Sorry for marketing being slow on this, but we're quite short of volunteers who spend the significant time to get through this. Any on the list want to help send out press releases - basically using this distribution list and copying the text from the latest FOSS4G 2008 advert.
