The goal is to get a dozen of these posters put up in every computer

DotGNU posters competion.  (The winners would be those who have made

we could ask for donations from people. there are many people who lurk on the mailing list (yes, i'm talking to you) because they are interested in DotGNU just waiting for their time to contribute. well this is a chance for them to do so. i dunno how donations will have to work, (ie who keeps the money, etcetc). maybe the fsf can do it. who knows about this stuff?

Who has good contacts to companies (which are not vendors of
proprietary software) that may be sufficiently interested in DotGNU

it seems like good candidates will be companies that are actually thinking about using DotGNU for their business. maybe this can lead to people pushing DotGNU to business?

An anonymous ftp area has been set up on where you can
upload poster ideas, drafts, submissions, etc. to the incoming
directory. After uploading something, please let us know by sending
email to address@hidden

where is this anonymous ftp area?

Maybe a New Face for DotGNU?

With the upcoming 0.5.0 release of pnet, and a new year beginning, it
may also be a good time to redress DotGNU in general. So besides
contributions towards the DotGNU Poster, we are also interested in new
slogan and logo ideas.


While our current slogan of "Making The Web Work For You" is quite ok,
we would like to see what other people can come up with. So if you
have some witty verbiage you'd like to spew out, let us know, and you
may get to see your words plastered all over the world.


Same story with the logo. We think the one we have rocks, but I am
also excited to see what other people can come up with. So please, if
you're talented in this sort of thing, help us out.
how should people submit their new logo and slogans?
