What about encouraging some video shorts much like Firefox did or is doing?

Also what about encouraging supporters to contact there local papers and
or TV outlets and getting a press release out to them. Maybe the Pres
release could be from Canonical? If we hit enuff outlets someone has got
to bite. At very least we we maybe able to increase awarnes of the Ubuntu
platform to the media people?

It would be nice to get some press to the general public to reise
awareness of Ubuntu/Linux and Open Source in general.

Just some thought.
