from a post on a john dvorak article at <http://discuss.pcmag.com/…mag/messages?msg=15635.54>
particularly: "Mozilla is a perfect example. When they finally got to release One I had to find out about it in a discussion group. Nobody from Mozilla.org has ever contacted me as far as I know. The Opera people, I have to say, are very responsive."
it sounds like no one is even trying to get attention. granted this article was a long time ago, but getting articles in mass media will at least get the mozilla name in people's heads. so, as nice as bumper stickers are and i would throw down on a stuffed mozilla lizard in a heartbeat, i think maybe a top down approach would work better here. get the product into the hands of mainstream media. make sure every release is accompanied with a press release that goes out to cnet, pcmag, etc.
just my $.02
