I agree, this is a great tactic.

I'd been writing my project for over a year and hoping to get help, buy-in, and collaboration. Then I realized that I hadn't updated my Readme since starting out, and it was out of date, and, frankly sucked. It was not convincing, and it was the first thing that devs saw when assessing my project!

Kudos to the author.
