Here are few ideas to start (they could be good or bad ):
1) Create a resource page: I would list Universities who offer a program in Cart or GIS. All or most University departments have their own webpage. Email the webmaster of the Geography department (probably a student) and request a link in return. I will start this process by insisting the Cartotalk link gets added to my schools Geography webpage.
A list of resources could also be included below the adsense ads or in the footer of the forum pages.
2) Tutorials: Create and post tutorials on using AI, photoshop, Flash, et cetera, on popular webmaster boards such as www.sitepoint.com, www.flashkit.com, www.webhostingtalk.com (or on specific tutorial boards). There are very few tutorials on AI on the internet and there's a huge user base.
The techniques we use in cartography for creating and working with graphics are applicable to webdesigners and graphic artists. In return, we would be introduced to new techniques we could apply to print cartography and digital cartography.
