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 :).

    $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 8, 2010 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/… $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 8, 2010 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). $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @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! $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 9, 2010 at 14:16

  • $\begingroup$ @Daniel, sounds like a good idea. Anyone else planning to be at FOCS ? $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 9, 2010 at 20:38
  • $\begingroup$ @Suresh, sorry for reading this so late... I'll be at FOCS too. $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 21, 2010 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. $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 13, 2010 at 20:27
  • $\begingroup$ We might have more participation at FCRC 2011. $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 13, 2010 at 21:04
  • $\begingroup$ I'll also be there. $\endgroup$
