Post to a forum of webmasters, not advocacy@, to discuss web design.
Likely same techniques whether promoting BSD or sewage pumps.

Post to a shoe designers forum, not advocacy@, to discuss 
comfortable style of shoe to walk round a computer district of
cities in, while advocating bookshops should stock & sell BSD cdroms.

Comfortable web pages & comfortable shoes are the medium, not the message.
Prating with web sites & debating about web style among the
already BSD- converted is hot air.

For advocacy@ Better discuss eg how to find a BSD stand sponsor,
fund, print & distribute BSD flyers.  Get a BSD talk inserted in a
tech seminar.  Seek an opening to do a BSD presentation to companies...
