[liberationtech] How do you spread a word?

Like I said in my original "+2" message 
<https://mailman.stanford.edu/mailman/private/liberationtech/2012-May/004026.html> 
(before I knew about Heise's code):

The development turned out to be a lot easier than expected (all it took 
was i18n from German to English), and the awareness campaign is - as 
expected - the actual work.
To be honest - I have zero marketing skills: I was taught that marketing 
was a sin <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDW_Hj2K0wo>. I'm less 
fanatic now, but that doesn't mean I have any idea how to make things 
popular.

Today I gave it *my best shot 
<http://thedod.noblogs.org/post/2012/06/05/deliver-us-not-into-surveillance/>*, 
but something tells me this is not how such things should be done. So:

  * If you have ideas how to promote +2, please let me know.
  * Even if you don't have any, at least share this with your friends
    (you even have a widget for that ;-) ).
  * Please consider installing this at your own site (after all - this
    is what the campaign is all about).

Thanks for all who helped so far (mainly the Heise crew).

Stay free,
The Dod
