Here's the pattern that works a lot better:

1. spend hundreds if not thousands of hours developing something really cool


2. spend 10 minutes writing the announcement to D.announce. Be sure to include:
   who, what, where, when, why, and how


3. someone posts it to reddit

Wait, what?  They did?

4. post the who, what, where, when, why and how on reddit AS SOON AS POSSIBLE after the reddit link appears. Stuff on reddit has a VERY SHORT shelf life. If it doesn't get action within a couple hours, it fades into oblivion. Identify yourself as the author, say AMA. The first one to post a comment tends to spark and set the tone for the discussion.

Oh man, I'm like two days too late for that.
goto 7?

5. check back on reddit once an hour or so for the next day, answer questions

Whoa.  I don't have time for that!

6. *****


7. profit!

Fingers crossed!
