Have you told your local/national paper about UBports?

Hmmm, How about some kind of form “ information sheet ” some thing that could be sent out en mass,all at once,and periodically, IE, have a big addresse book / file/ folder ,and kill all the birds with one hit.

@lindisfarne can you please tell which paper to avoid asking the same institution again?
@thebird - Yeah. I agree with the sentiment of the article - that we really oughtn't to be replacing perfectly good hardware every year, and that planned obsolescence is iniquitous. I didn't agree with the solution offered - going back to a model whose OS wasn't going to be supported, and whose apps would, over time, cease to work. Hence I mentioned the option of UBports' maintained OS on perfectly serviceable hardware.

Another angle similar to that is getting local colleges/universities aware through their Computer Science Clubs (some actually have FOSS/linux clubs too). Having them cover it, and in turn the university papers, could not just bring in new people, but new volunteers to the project.
Anyway, whether it is a school paper, or local/national, press release templates are a good way to jump start that so folks don't have to "create from scratch" every single time. I wonder building something like this would be helpful in getting folks the confidence to share...essentially, a press page is a bunch of templates that makes it easier for reporters to cover it.
The press page contains a "press kit"...sometimes in the page, and in zip folders (with logos, headshots of core devs, origin story summarized, etc.)

@hummlbach I have told the Danish paper "Information" about it. But I don't see the problem. I only think that more people telling the same papers about it will make the papers in question take the "story" more serious.
I've just submitted a comment on this article:
about UBports' Ubuntu Touch... Maybe someone there will take a look at us.

I actually brought a UT device to my cell carriers local store, they were very interested when I was just talking about it, and when I gave them a hands on experience, they were very receptive to it.
I did that too, when I first flashed UT, @tigerpro. I love getting other people to at least experience using it. Without fail, everyone has said it's beautiful and intuitive.
