Interesting, i contacted the creator of the show during Series 2 with
the intention of getting a Ubuntu poster in the background. They said
it wasn't out of the question, but Series 3 was not yet in the planning
stage. I would imagine that the 'Highway' poster would be less than
ideal, but one stating "Ubuntu, Linux for Human Beings" only would be a
really good idea.
We would need to speak to Canonical to get clearing for the logo, i
can't imagine them saying No. So the next thing is getting a suitable
sized poster. If it's just a plain poster, would should probably
consider getting a run of at least 10 - as i know i'd certainly consider
I've added this idea to the IdealsPool of the Wiki . We should
probably try and construct a suitable email to Ben. If we start this on
the Wiki, we could all try and chime in with suggestions.
