I have done that today. Not the big newspaper (that will probably be tomorrow) but the magazine that my alternative-encouraging bank publishes. Why? because they have a reach to people that might be interested in the idea of a collectively run OS, that is an alternative to Google and iOS.
Just a simple thought - but one so obvious that others might have forgotten about it. When we publish stories like this in IT magazines, there is a risk of preaching to the choir, or to the lions. Neither will get the word spread.
And it seems to me that there is a good story to be told here, from a journalistic perspective, about how the project originally was dropped, but then revived and now even has moved beyond the place where it was left off.
That might help create the community buzz that will make more "laypeople" (such as myself) aware of the benefits of Ubuntu Touch and in turn, push some of the hardware manufacturers (such as FP) to think more actively about joining forces with UBports.
