I severely doubt that. I fully agree with Mikel that on the face of it; we have no real understanding of how OSM is used. We're at the whim of macrumours and tumblr sites. That said the board works in mysterious ways. If we have a back channel, let it continue.

I do however agree with you on seeing the CWG through the OSMF engage a media agency, however that would be a decision for the board/CWG.
