According to my experience (and believe me I already introduced KDE to many
companies incl. larger investment banks etc) such newspapers help a lot.
Basically often two things happen.
1.) Boss reads about new product / technology and then asks the middle
management to report if they are already doing an evaluation.
2.) middle management wants tointroduce a technology and when they present
their ideas to the boss it helps them a _lot_ if the boss can say: "Yeah I
already know,... some hot stuff..... go for it...)
