Marketing TechStars: get in on the action

I'm totally having fun with the community -- trying to let everyone know that applications are open and due June 1, 2010.  And, I'm happy to report that folks in the community are helping me get the word out and I'm deeply appreciative. Marcelo and Jennifer of Seattle 2.0 have been helping me. The TechStars mentors have been helping out. The venture capital community has been getting into the spirit. Here's a photo that I received from Erik Benson of Voyager Capital yesterday  - the photo if you can't see it is a picture of the TechStars brochure at Voyagers reception desk.
