I think that Karen has done this for known groups.

Has it been promoted in the CloudStack Linked In group (and the EU one) yet?

@CloudStack has had lots of tweets scheduled for this already, but
perhaps we need more?

Who wants to take this up?  users@ and dev@ are the right targets IMO.
 Once a week might be too much, but then again we are not that far

Hmm...  that's a reasonable idea.  What do others think?

Not sure if that's "legal", but somebody can certainly try!  I'd add a
"Conferences" section, and then link to both the 2012 one and this
one.  You'll need to cite the announcements probably.

I don't "do" facebook, so I leave this to whomever (Joe?) has that access.
