Re: For Google+ users: BSD community

I would like to give a counterpoint to the Google bashing and general
negativity in reply to Tony's post. (Yes, I work at Google, but that
is irrelevant.)

What you failed to realize is that different people use different
channels. Even if you happen to prefer mailing lists or NNTP or Gmane,
other people may prefer web forums or social networking sites. I think
that it is important to reach out to these users as well. The BSD
community is great in this regard.

Next time someone complains on a NetBSD list on how we fail at
marketing, I will remind her or him of the attitude displayed in this
thread, which I frankly find very arrogant.

Btw, there is also a separate NetBSD community on Google+, and several
developers are members there.
