I will repeat myself. I have said this on the lists many times:

We count on YOU, the users to spread the news.

Form a community. Do whatever it takes.

We are not the kind of people that are suitable to do this:

Personally, I never read blogs. They are a waste of my time; 99% are pure drivel. 
Everybody has opinions, few actually have something interesting to say. 
Knowing that I have such attitude, do you think I am suitable to write a blog ?

I hope not :-)

What I (and Florian) are trying to say is that our limited time is better spent 
on coding than on spreading the news of FPC. But no-one is stopping you from spreading the 
news, on the contrary. We'll be glad that you do, because it means you think FPC 
is worth the effort.

Trying to convince us to spread the news, however, is wasted effort.
