Have we looked at paying someone to be responsible for PR? I'm not
thinking a PR firm or anything, but someone in the community who is
actually charged with being responsible for dealing with PR. That
would mean we don't have to worry about the "outside world" not
having a point of contact, and we would also be able to make sure we
have case studies and what-not.
