How about
a) a sandbox i.e. virtual environment where algorithms are implemented similar to github.  I use github just the same.
b) training videos and uploading them to youtube and other social media
c) viral marketing i.e. word of mouth, I do a lot of talking anyway :)

Jon, I may have sent you this the other week, but in case I didn't,
there is an Octave wiki located at

Video tutorials can be very helpful. Since you're going through the
Octave learning curve now, it could be worthwhile if you'd start a
Wiki page on there and create a notional list of particular video
topics that would be worthwhile. Especially starting with the earlier
things that gave you trouble that may seem obvious to those of us who
have been using the software for some time.  Especially, since the
GUI, editor, and debugger are new to this version, there are surely a
lot of things that could be explained better that aren't apparent to
us.  We also generally get people using Octave who are familiar with
using Matlab, so it may be that we rely too much on the existing
Matlab tutorial material out there, and capturing your experiences
with where that's insufficient could be valuable.
