I guarantee you this wasn't a republished press release. Some NY-based Drupal member made a personal connection to the NYTimes reporter and successfully "pitched" the story.
I'm not opposed to us doing more/ better press releases, but press releases alone will not be sufficient. We need to identify and build relationships with specific individuals in the media.
