I've just signed up to the list and will take a few days to think
about the best approach for this. If I come up with anything good I'll
have a crack and see where I can get :) The difficult bit will be
figuring out how to create an "engineered explosion of activism" on
release day - sounds like a fun challenge though!

Short list:

1) Digg (or submit to whatever your favorite news site is - Karsten's
suggestion of one item a week from the bits that crop up on
f-marketing-l seems like it would be quite a good start)
2) Post comments on favorite news sites pointing to Fedora's
innovations/motivations for doing things etc (at least where relevant)
3) Give a friend a live CD and point them in the direction of
fedora-list/fedora irc (using a mac and have no idea where the hash
key is - this is ridiculous, so much for ease of use :S)
4) Answer one Free Media request (don't know much about this program
or how it works)
5) Perhaps we could get some "spread Fedora" banners (a la "spread
firefox") for people to put on blogs/websites/forum sigs etc

Can't think of any more just now - anybody else?

Best wishes,
