It's great that the Perl Foundation started the blog. I think the blog
made a great contribution to bring more transparency of TPFs work. And
they can't do everything...

Some ideas about a fictive Perl-PR-platform:

*) search for companies that use Perl a lot
**) provide this list to workshop organisers (to ask for sponsoring)
*) regular press releases on press portals (e.g. openpr.com) about Perl
projects (e.g. milestones of Parrot, great developments of
Catalyst,...)  to keep these projects in the public's mind
*) keep a knowledge base of Perl project up to date (at least some
links)
*) links to perl-related  "media" (perlcast.com, radio-perl.de,
theperlreview.com, foo-magazin.de,...)
*) links to perl-related jobs
**) I search the interenet for Perl-Jobs (in the germanspeaking area)
regularly, but these jobs doesn't appear on jobs.perl.org
*) up-to-date success stories
*) a calendar (with "search by country" abilities)
*) list of personalities who want to talk in other PM groups
*) active fundraising (maybe like Wikimedia)

I know  that lots some of these things already exist, but they are
widely spread. That means, that you have to know where you can find
these information.
