There hasn't been much going on on meta, and I feel like there hasn't been much going on in terms of promotion or activity around the parent site, in the past few weeks (at least since the end of august). I don't think that bodes well for the site; we've seen a good influx of users from two tweets by Joel, and there has been some cross-network activity from some great questions that have bubbled up the StackExchange homepage, but other than that, it feels a little dead.
What should we do about that? I'd like to see some more efforts into promotion. Are there any events coming up any of us are attending? Do we work for companies with active twitter accounts that can occasionally tweet a question (I've been doing this with @quplo)? Can we point questions to people who have a lot of followers (like @stephenanderson, who I've been forwarding relevant questions to)? Remember, you can earn the new promoter badges for linking to a question and getting at least 50 hits to that URL.
