When I saw the advertisement for the Cognitive Science site proposal in the sidebar at Stack Overflow, I thought it was great idea.
I've committed to it, and I've tweeted the information about it a handful of times and shared it on Facebook. Unfortunately, I'm not in any close professional relationships involving the subject any longer. I'm wondering what more I can do to promote the site.
Usually, I follow up the tweet with a bit of background about my experience on other SE sites, but I think people are afraid to click on it, and even more afraid to make a commitment to something to which they've only just been exposed.
