A Twitter account seems ideal for this type of thing.  The bar for
following a Twitter account is a lot lower (and easier to do) than
following a blog or subscribing to a mailing list, so I think more
people could eventually be reached.  Retweeting also allows word to be
spread more easily and quickly.
