Is there not a project (other than this mailing list) within the work of 
the FreeBSD Foundation to promote BSD within the media? All it needs is 
for a small group of people to contact existing Linux magazines and see 
what kinds of articles they are looking for and whether they'd be 
prepared to accept BSD ones, and then try and find people who are 
willing to write them.

I've taken a small step in emailing one of the UK magazines and asking 
them if they'd include BSD groups in their local LUGs listings, it only 
took a couple of minutes to write the email and the worst they can say 
is "no".
