Hear, hear!  Polls, contests, evangelism, side projects (such as
enhancing the jabber.org website), all of these things can help build
and sustain a community.  It takes creative people to think those
things up.

So let's brainstorm... What else should we do?  I'll start:

- evangelism: promote jabber to your colleagues, clients, friends,
blog about it to the world, write articles and reviews on various
community websites, participate in user forums
- marketing: come up with clever ideas to build mindshare, draw new
talent. For example, perhaps we could convince sponsors to give prizes
that could be given away at a contest.  Then the contest would need a
lot of advertising.

What else?
