Thank you!

The video was originally made for our screencast project (
http://www.ubuntu.org.ni/pildoras). There's going to be at least five
different videos that people can use to promote Ubuntu at conferences and
fairs. We use blip.tv because it's easier to upload .ogv videos there, but I
uploaded it also to youtube and flickr and will (hopefully, when I have some
time :) upload it to vimeo.

We have _a lot_ of pictograms that we use for presentations. We have a
mandatory policy in our LoCo to make everything we do (artwork,
presentations, tutorials, videos) available for download under a free
license (we recommend PD0 for works that don't have the Ubuntu brand and
CC-BY or CC-BY-SA for everything else).

The idea with the pictograms was to categorize and upload them to
SpreadUbuntu. I've already uploaded the first ones:


I'll try to upload the rest later this week.

It would be a good idea to post something to http://ccmixter.org/forums and
