I'll be at FOCS in Las Vegas. Others from here might be there too. Is there anything we can do to help promote the site ? A meetup ? booth with big cstheory sign :).

    $\begingroup$ Las Vegas? Maybe get some showgirls to help with promotion. $\endgroup$ – Dave Clarke Oct 8 '10 at 8:15

    $\begingroup$ I won't be there, but I'd suggest a poster with a few "best questions" in large print on it: representatives of (1) community wiki, (2) a reference request where a top expert swooped in and resolved the issue, and (3) an open problem such as an NP-reduction where answerers solved it on the spot. $\endgroup$ – Aaron Sterling Oct 8 '10 at 12:24
  • $\begingroup$ and leave it at the reception desk ? not a bad idea. Maybe I'll post a question asking for nominations. And here's the question: meta.cstheory.stackexchange.com/questions/457/… $\endgroup$ – Suresh Venkat Oct 8 '10 at 22:10

    $\begingroup$ I suggest that we also add a small list of some famous theorist who use the site (of course with their permissions) with a one line (positive) comment/opinion from them about the site (similar to books). $\endgroup$ – Kaveh Oct 9 '10 at 6:19

    $\begingroup$ @Suresh, it might also be nice to meet up for dinner one night (this could be rather informally put together). I'll be in Las Vegas too, and I wouldn't want to miss meeting anyone who I've interacted with here because we're lost in the milling of the crowd! $\endgroup$ – Daniel Apon Oct 9 '10 at 14:16

  • $\begingroup$ @Daniel, sounds like a good idea. Anyone else planning to be at FOCS ? $\endgroup$ – Suresh Venkat Oct 9 '10 at 20:38
  • $\begingroup$ @Suresh, sorry for reading this so late... I'll be at FOCS too. $\endgroup$ – Ryan Williams Oct 21 '10 at 2:01

How about trying to get current site users together for a photo? Preferably in the FOCS hallway during one of the small breaks, so that lots of people see a big photo and wonder what it's about. Also, then we have a big photo we can post...somewhere...

Or maybe even hold up a big sign in the photo that says "cstheory.stackexchange.com", and then people won't have to wonder.

It will probably help to try and include some of the big names on the site.

  • $\begingroup$ of the current users, I know of only one (Daniel Apon) who plans to be there. of course there will be others, but they don't lurk on meta. $\endgroup$ – Suresh Venkat Oct 13 '10 at 20:27
  • $\begingroup$ We might have more participation at FCRC 2011. $\endgroup$ – Jukka Suomela Oct 13 '10 at 21:04
  • $\begingroup$ I'll also be there. $\endgroup$ – arnab Oct 13 '10 at 21:06
