Not sure that's well spent money really: Linux using people generally read 
Linux related sites and all pretty much of them have covered Neo multiple 
times already and will very well do again if you only politely ask them. Or 
even send them a review unit with the clear message that this is not yet a 
mass market product. Essentially you can rely on word of mouth there, I 
believe. The vision behind the product is powerful enough so that people who 
understand and care about it will promote it anyhow.

As for the tech savvy ones: much the same applies, but you need to focus on 
different sites. Give a few units to respected tech sites and they will do 
the job much better than we can (heck, Ars will do so anyway as will do 
Slashdot). Once the more geek oriented sites have covered it, move onto the 
mass market sites a la cnet.

And most importantly get units out where people can play with them!
