As an example, Mimi and I mentioned "chandlerproject.org" several times
to Scoble, but he used "www.osafoundation.org" anyway -- probably
because he Googled for "chandler".
That said, I'm currently thinking that the redirect is a bad idea.
Having *no* OSAF link as a top search result for "chandler" is worse
than the current state of affairs.
Perhaps our efforts should be around:
- improving the page rank of chandlerproject.org (which means getting
more people to link to it)
- making sure link to chandlerproject.org is very clear from
osafoundation.org. Heikki recommended putting logo right next to
"Looking for Chandler?" link, for example.
