Why reinvent the wheel - why not just take advantage of Gnome look? Or
set up a Flickr pool - I think one already exists possibly?

With respect to the magazine, I'd be more than happy if someone from
the art team would be interested in doing a monthly post that would
share work that members of the art team were involved with - whether
it was Fedora related or just created using tools exclusively in
Fedora. Obviously, as Nicu said further down, there would need to be
some kind of editorial review...
I certainly need to speak with Martin about getting his echo overviews
published on there...
I sadly don't have the time to organise the posting of any more
content myself, as life is getting busier. If someone is interested in
working with me on this, drop a note and we'll see about getting you
added to the blog members, either as editor or author.
Sorry thoughts are a bit spread out, I'm in the library between classes.
Thanks for thinking of Fedora Magazine though :)
