It is a gargantuan task which is why I'd hoped it could be a community 
effort. :) It should still be regardless of someone being hired to click 
the links, etc.

Cloudant, fwiw, already has developer advocates, etc on payroll who's 
job it is to do "this sort of thing" (I'm one of them, fwiw). Some of my 
cycles already go to finding (or writing) interesting bits about 
Cloudant and Apache CouchDB bringing peoples attention to them.

I'll start relaying interesting finds to this list, and anyone who wants 
(payed or otherwise) can hopefully help with (re)promotion.

If nothing else, we'll keep this list stocked with interesting content 
about CouchDB. :)
