talking about journalists... it might be good to
consider telling the
local teams (or at least the winning team) some time in advance before
making the decision public, to enable them to prepare a proper (joint)
press release from the chapter and/or the wmf. I know this is not very
ideal towards the community, but this might be an advantage to catch
attention, and to reach out that way.
Against. That'd mean there are some priviledged people who should know
(how will you define them?) and "the others". I also don't think that
whoever gets word of the results will be able to keep his keyboard shut
for long enough. Besides, it's the WMF who's organising the conference
with the aid of the local team and local chapters (if available) the way
I understand it. Don't shoot for PR, just try to make the best bid you
can so that the conference runs smoothly, not with glamour.
