"The Linux Foundation's Collaboration Summit tends to focus on
technical and legal sessions for industry experts — but one
of the better sessions at the Summit was Press Training for
Community Projects. Led by Jennifer Cloer, the Linux Foundation's
director of communications and community, the session drew a great
mix of open source contributors and press to trade ideas.
"In addition to Cloer, the event brought in folks from several
open source projects, a handful of press (including Alex Williams
from ReadWriteWeb, Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols, and Jake Edge from
LWN) and a few other PR folks. It was a half-day session, with some
really good back-and-forth about how to get attention from the
press and the best coverage for projects."
