I am +1 on shops doing write ups of what they've done and what they're planning to do, a la the posts Morbus has been making.  I however do agree that the dev list isn't the right place for it.  Planet makes sense (I've done a little of that myself recently), or consulting list would work as well.  (The former probably gets more readers, which is either good or bad depending on your POV.)
