One question I have is regarding this final point, "Many big organizations scour local news sources for good stories, so you might get some hits there too.". One thing I've found in the past when trying to generate press for my own startup is that after we got coverage in local papers, a couple bigger papers claimed that "the story was already done" and they didn't want to write a story that was already written. Have you found this at all? Do you think this was just their way of telling me nicely that they weren't interested in the story?
Happy Birthday David!
The really awkward part though, is that you inevitable haven't introduced yourselves so you have to do an "outroduction" at the end - right after the plane touches down and right before you turn into mortal enemies, elbowing each other to get your bag and get off the plane - by awkwardly chuckling and saying "ha I realize we haven't even exchanged names! Well anyway, I'm Adam, it was nice to meet you. Never see you again!"
*elbow to the face!!*
