What is this reaching out? What do you mean by it? Let's not copy the

My preference for the process is that Team:Info's editorial influence is
limited to linguistic issues (you have a native speaker on your end, so
do we) and flagging up blog posts that really would not add to the
event. As well as that blogposts are personal. Team:Content is a bunch
of unruly personalities, as it should be, and having that shine through
in the blog posts is a feature, not a bug.

So yes, you get to give a final go/no-go on any posts, but there'll be
no real substantive input on the posts unless the author allows for that.

Having worked with professional editors *as well as* corporate
mealy-mouthed communications advisors, I prefer the former category and
would like you to take on that particular mantle.

So yes, the lighter the process, the better.
