Re: sarge and the Wall Street Journal
Mainstream media hears that Open Source is less vulnerable to security
risks & ( to the extent they hear anything about Debian) that Sarge
wouldn't ship until 'it was ready'.
The 'news' was Debian shipped unready & with a security vulnerability.
Yes it was,discovered, fixed and every probable user in the window of
vulnerability informed. But there was still news.
No one from the mainstream media will read a Debian list for news. If we
want to get 'the word out' a continued campaign to communicate with
mainstream journalists needs to be done as the call to the WSJ
tech-writer. Then after you have been ready to give up in despair 3
times Debian will edge into their consciousness.
ZDnet's quality aside, I wouldn't be surprised to discover about 3x
people read it as the entire open-source media combined.
