Samantha, I agree with you. Again and again I have seen national-level 
"campaigns" simply peter out and blow away. A specific, local-level 
campaign makes a lot of sense. The Bay Area is a good choice because 
there's so much happening in BizTech there, but I want to see more 
happening at other locals, too. But one by one seems like a good way to go.
