In a similar vein, I've been watching this thread go by thinking we
could piggy-back on top of Ubuntu marketing. I'd love to see more
(some?) Xubuntu stuff on

We're also in the middle of getting a test site together for a
migration of to wordpress, perhaps once that's done we can
also add a "promote xubuntu" page to the site? We don't exactly make
it easy for folks who already support us to get ahold of our logos
(you have to search on our wiki) and other things so people can put
"badges" on their blogs and things.

I was planning on coming anyway :) so I'd be happy to do some Xubuntu
showing off.
