Well, if those are that small, then is the text in the bubbles (i.e.,
'FEATURES') large enough? Should they be reprinted at about the same
transparency as the reprinted symbol for the foundation? Or something?

Back on the blurbs, they can definitely be shortened. What I think they
should be (mostly adapted from mo's blurbs):

freedom: "freedom trumps conveinence" # bit iffy on the word 'trumps',
                                        but it's all I could think of
friends: "friends around the world"
features: "fedora can do it"
first: "followed, not following"
