As open source projects I think we often assume that if you build it, they will come; some people will find you that way, for sure. But there are so, so many more people who won't find you that way, and to be honest, these are the people you need in your project, with their diversity of experiences, skills, and backgrounds. Want your project to be different from all the others? Invest in getting new kinds of people involved.
