		Start soliciting magazines for article placement.
		Post list of available writers (in several languages!) on the Web
	Postgres Speakers Bureau
		Select "Toastmaster"
		Assemble list of speakers, specialties, langauges, and regions.
		Contact tech conventions.
		Solicit companies for travel funds.
	Certification and Training
		Solicit Postgres-using companies to find certification programs in 
development.
		Try to coordinate CORE approval of one or more programs?
