This two headed marketing approach is ALL that is required to make REBOL
a commonly known technology.
#1 Pound the blogosphere! Bombard bloggers with press releases, comment
on articles, and tell all about rebol. Ok, we have been doing the
latter, but its the first two that do the magic. Give those bloggers
good controversial story ideas with an up-and-coming lean. This is a
highly effective and proven strategy, and I have seen it work nicely
even for some stupid ideas. It takes a surprisingly minimal effort too.
The concept you want to push is important too, and that is that rebol
opens up a new dimension for programmers, ways of programming not before
practical. A few amazing testimonials might help. You might add the fact
that once you do REBOL, you never want to go back to the old ways!
#2 Forefront. If I dont want to program my Gphone in Java, what about
rebol? Maybe not the Gphone, but these type of up-and-comers. Being
involved in these latest greatest techs is very critical! It puts rebol
in with the movers and shakers of the programming world, people looking
to learn new things, and highly valued exposure. Costly it is, so choose
Other strategies are nice, but this is practical, doable, and will FOR
