+1 I heartily support opensource.com using the open source way
whenever possible. :)

So while I'm not sure about the Facebook question, I get the overall
idea of asking, and definitely encourage more!

An interesting idea: would you and the rest of the editorial team
consider having a regular meeting on #opensource.com? You could either
move one of your editorial meetings there, or host a new one that is
about discussing story ideas and future focus. I know of at least a
few people who would attend and interact (myself included), and I'm
certain good things would come from it.
