Are they not? Good gods, what ever happened to genuine interest and
willingness to provide interesting reading? It's amazing SoS actually
published anything all them years back.
Oh wait, could it be that we simply have nothing of interest to them?
Like, you know, "oh, we looked, but it seems like Linux audio isn't
getting anywhere after all, but do let us know if you have anything
worthwhile coming"? ;-)
Or could it be that no one bothered to talk to the media in language
that it understands?
When did anybody last contact industry magazines and suggested to
write a decent overview of e.g. MuseScore that seems to be doing so
well lately, dontcherknow, with all the recent Bach hype and all...?
When did anybody last told editors of any of those very magazines that
he mixed and mastered a shitload of albums with A3 using latest
linuxDSP and Calf plug-ins which coincidentally work so amazingly well
and don't look like they were designed by a monkey on bad crack?
How did it happen that http://audio.tutsplus.com/ republishes same
tired "29 music-making apps for Linux" story over an over again
instead of some new interesting coverage? Why do they still have
"Create a Tutorial, Get Paid!" section on the website, and yet I can't
recall a single tutorial on explaining the basics of creating pads
with Yoshimi or suchlike?
Because, you know, all I hear is that evil media is so very evil. And
for some reason which I can't really explain it sounds a bagload of
excuses to me.

Oh for god's sake. Inbound links are the past of search engines marketing.
Besides, what is it exactly that you want to promote? :)
> Having some killer content won't go amiss either.
I truly admire your priorities :)
