It's astonishing how many misconceptions from the "general public" you get when you raise the topic of polyamory (as you probably know).
Might be useful to compile a list of different media to introduce people to the idea (depending on what kind of person you're talking to. some might want to read a novel, some watch documentary, a penal discussion, some a proper film, someone else might be open to a scientific paper or a conference etc etc.
I found this podium discussion from a festival really useful for example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uTfo-hIt_4
