How can we know if we're doing a good / bad job or a better / worse job?
With metrics!  Well partially with metrics, here's some for the release
today.

Of the three main pages linked to or talked about here's how many hits
each one got and where they came from.  With this we can see where good
outlets and bad outlets are.  We did make the front page of /. which helps
explain why our /wiki/Releases/9/Alpha/ReleaseNotes page got so many hits.
I'll send this same information out in a few days to see how we did.

We didn't make it to the front page of digg today, by contrast Ubuntu got
front paged with 1685 for their alpha just 3 days ago.  How do we drum up
more interest?

One cheap way: relentlessly drive everybody on this list, and others, to Digg stories about Fedora.

It's like ol' PT Barnum said: the best way to draw a crowd is with a crowd.
