Maybe we do, collectively. Let's leverage our collective social
networking. Via Skywarn contacts, I know a number of local tv
Meteorologists, who tend to be most tech-savvy folks in the station.
And I know some pro-news-bloggers locally. Used to know music critics,
just met a film critic.

brainstorming -

* Facebook and LinkedIn groups, use those to send announcements to our
* Boston User Group Calendar website
* Boston Globe Calendar (check lead time)
* Boston Globe, WBUR, WGBH, & TV technology correspondents (or weather)
* flyers in indie computer shops, college campuses, social service
agencies weeks in advance

Those of you who are professionals, whether computer or otherwise,
should consider joining LinkedIn -- it's the social network for
professional networking. We can use it for publicity as well as
Facebook -- and it may help your career.
