That seems to me just the same as what Nick was saying, just he wants
to tell people en mass :-)

I kinda agree with both of you - I think getting exposure in design
magazine will be neccessary and excellent for the free design desktop,
but I think money can be better spent elsewhere.

To me, advertising is paying a cash premium for yourself to write just
what you want shown in someone else's publication, while PR is paying
a little in time & effort towards persuation for a journalist to write
what they like about you in their publication.

So if you want to publish glowing 'Ready for the big time!' messages
in a design magazine before this is really the case, advertising is
the way to go. But when it is really the case, journalists won't need
much persuation! :-)
