I’ve been thinking about this for a while - and isn’t it about time that the BF got someone whose sole responsibility is to handle the media for Blender?
This person could be paid or a volunteer, or even have the role’s seperate components divided up amongst seperate people. Responsibilities would include:
-Preparation of press releases
-Making sure release notes are good and tidy
-Submitting press releases to all major and minor organisations
-eg CGSociety, Google News, Slashdot, Digg, Reddit, deviantART, and everyone else
-Co-ordinating ‘evangelism’ efforts in wider community
-Spin and incident management
Who would volunteer for such a position?
