Thanks for your question the website is not ready for launch as of yet, it will be located at www.PICISI.com; as for twitter, and other social media here is that info:

e-mail: picisiproject@hotmail.com
Twitter: https://twitter.com/PICISIproject
reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/PICISI/
coinblab: http://coinblab.com/profile/PICISI
google +: https://plus.google.com/102315152462990304798/posts
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Picisi/1580118548922587

Djnocide (PICISI Assistant Director) handles all of the social media accounts including the bitcointalk PICISI account.  

Before the website is built I am 'setting the structural foundation', vocalizing my vision and strategy for PICISI though various article.  The 'project prep' also involves reaching specific prelaunch goals to insure stable and reliable growth after launch.  

I've ordered a conceptual rendering of what I want the site to look like, here is the thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=988062.0;all  here is the product end result: https://i.imgur.com/RCUTLiV.jpg  The contractor did his best however the end result was not satisfactory.   Batesresearch volunteered to redo the PSD, that is what I was referring to in our PM.

Once a satisfactory PSD goes up, we will move some of the primary emphasis from structural development to community development.  We need more admins, we need more community members, and we need more community participation.  Currently we have a community of 30 people which is more than anticipated at this point, however engagement is far less than I expected.  The PSD should inspire more participation.

Once the final launch prerequisites are accomplished, a formal beginning will start -- creation of a PICISI ANN thread.  The site should be up within days of the announcement.   If the community is organized and engaged we will have an exchange in place shortly thereafter.  

Given the specific launch prerequisites we will have a minimum of 8 CF campaigns, given the way the program works each campaign will enjoy some sponsorship, all campaigns will see massive promotion from: organizers, contractors, admins and/or engaged community.  Depending on how reasonable organizers are with their goals, we should have lots of success, of course my hope is for 100% inaugural campaign success.

Dear PICISI sponsor,

For a limited time (ends thursday ) PICISI is offering each PICISI sponsor a FREE article about their entity in relation to PICISI.

Please note that the story need not relate directly to crowdfunding, or cryptocurrency, the most important factor is an informative and compelling story, we will figure out how to include PICISI, Pi, and/or other essentials. 

I invite you to take advantage of the opportunity to put your entity, you, or someone else related to your entity in the spotlight. 

Contact me via PM or here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1053613.msg11312978#msg11312978

I still think the best kind of marketing is the one where you can get people that are actually interested in the idea of Gridcoin itself to join. There are a lot of people out there who are already into BOINC and for them joining GRC is a win-win: Thy continue to do what they do anyway and get cpryto-currency additionally.

That also explains the steady growth of GRC compared to other pump&dum coins.

Examples for marketing of this kind are:

there were a lot of things happening:

Press Release: PiGrid - get rewarded for helping research projects at home

Researchers already have technologies that can help in the fight against climate change and diseases.
Yet, those technologies often depend on large computational ressources for simulation and validation.
Now, a combination of innovations allows to incentivize progress.

In citizen science projects, each individual can volunteer to help.
By devoting spare computing time to research groups everyone could "recycle" idle working time of any computing device for a good cause.
BOINC[1] is a scientific network that has a paramount solution to manage the needed logistics:
it distributes small work units to participating computers for calculation and collects their results later while maintaining scalability.
On top of that, another innovation, Gridcoin[2], is able to reward participation in the BOINC network.
Gridcoin uses a blockchain algorithm to achieve fast and secure payments in a global, energy-efficient network.
While Bitcoin was consuming more than 15 Million US-Dollar in electricity each day[3], Gridcoin is able to strip energy waste and
dedicate 98% of globally networked ressources to scientific tasks.
This became possible by utilizing self-organizing properties of Bitcoin, asymmetric cryptography of Blackcoin[4] and
Gridcoins advanced blockchain concepts in "proof-of-research".

Still, a remaining problem is user adoption. The setup of Gridcoin combined with BOINC is time consuming and tricky.
This bars novices from easy access. In order to provide end users with a plug-n-play solution, PiGrid[5] has developed open-source software
that works out of the box and takes care of all related configurations and updates.
PiGrid can be used on existing hardware or bundled with pre-installed systems.
A graphical user interface allows choice of research projects via drag-and-drop, monitoring of progress and tracking rewards in Gridcoin.
The first generation of PiGrid solutions will be crowdfunded in this Kickstarter: http://pigrid.com/kickstarter

Below is a list of links for background information.
- short introduction to Gridcoin: uscore.net
- overview of BOINC: boinc.berkeley.edu
- developer board of Gridcoin: Developer board
- twitter: @PiGrid_com
- Gridcoin documentation: gridcoin.us

We'd be glad to hear whether you consider to mention PiGrid in any news coverage.
In case of specific questions, we are happy to answer your mail to press@pigrid.com.
Thank you for your time!

[Gridcoin Member], in help for PiGrid
