Sounds great. If you like GNU Parallel:

* Post the intro videos on Reddit/Diaspora*/forums/blogs/
  Identi.ca/Google+/Twitter/Facebook/Linkedin/mailing lists
* Get the merchandise https://www.gnu.org/s/parallel/merchandise.html
* Give a demo at your local user group/team/colleagues
* Request or write a review for your favourite blog or magazine
* Request or build a package for your favourite distribution (if it is
not already there)
* Invite me for your next conference

If you use GNU Parallel for research:

* Please cite GNU Parallel in you publications (use --bibtex)

If GNU Parallel saves you money:

* (Have your company) donate to FSF https://my.fsf.org/donate/

pretty much black magic.

Please try out the current git version:

git clone git://git.savannah.gnu.org/parallel.git
