We'll have no trouble getting publicity when we need it (which will be
soon), but we're just now past the proof-of-concept stage and into the
iron-out-the-protocol stage, and so the code is in an unstable state.
If we got lots of publicity today, we'd just have lots of semi-clued
volunteers asking why the code doesn't quite compile on their VM, why my
node won't talk to this older node, blah blah. After we stabilize the
code a bit more, publish the final protocol, and release, then we'll
want lots of volunteers to set up nodes to test a large-scale network.
My guess is that will be in a week or two.
