Atlanta folks,

I'd like to see if we can get some local media coverage of PyCon - ideally, both before and at the conference.  I need your help.  Who can tell me -

MEDIA SOURCES - mainstream newspaper, television, and radio news; local techie newspaper; independent/counterculture-type newspapers that may be interested in the paradigm-shifting open-source kumbaya angle.

There's a comprehensive list of TV stations at http://www.stationindex.com/tv/markets/Atlanta

The mainstream paper is the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://www.ajc.com)

The Atlanta Business Chronicle has a technology section (http://atlanta.bizjournals.com/atlanta/industries/high_tech/general).

I think the main alternative paper in Atlanta is still "Creative Loafing" (http://atlanta.creativeloafing.com/gyrobase/index). 

We should also get in touch with the local university newspapers, especially GA Tech (http://www.nique.net/), Georgia State (http://www.gsusignal.com/) and Emory (http://www.emorywheel.com/).

REPORTERS - at any of those sources.  Help identify the ones who, based on their usual beats, are most likely to report on PyCon.

CONTACTS - does anybody actually *know*, on a human-to-human level, anybody who works in one of the capacities above?

I think we have a couple of AJC staff members in the group. Speak up folks!

Doug
