don't forget to post to the Plone group on LinkedIn

Also, event listing sites such as Eventful.com, Upcoming.org and
Zvents.com. You can use http://gigblastr.com to bulk post events to
the first two, Twitter, and we're working on Facebook posting.

It wasn't easy to find. The only way I could locate it was by browsing.

I met Michael Arrington once but I don't think he remembers me. I know
Chris Brogan and could see if he wouldn't mind plugging it on his blog
and/or twitter network.

No, but this is a great opportunity to make one up. :)  I'm cc'ing
MrTopf as he has blogged about how to promote Plone the "Web 2.0" way
and even given a talk about it.
