@liaizon if there were a bunch of people who wanted to educate tech journalists about the fediverse (or free code software in general), that might be something that could be done as a project of
@feneas . Their current volunteers are up to their arse in alligators, but they tell me the org could do many more things if people volunteered to do them.
@liaizon it's something anyone could do, but journalists would likely take outreach from a formal org more seriously than from a net rando. It would also allow the outreach to bedone in a coordinated way, where each journalist could have one consistent contact person to ask questions of. Maybe they could even get on-the-record comments for stories from "X, a public educator from the Federated Networks Association", or something like that.
