The things i think of here (fedora slogans):
- (Compass) Fedora guides you through the linux distributions or
Fedora leads the way
- (Telescope) Fedora, a impact visible from space

And based on those "slogans" you can make up a nice wallpaper ^_^

It could work...
not really sure what to think of it really.

So a new theme would be welcome. Why not on the FC1 - 4 releases
(blue/purple like) which fits the name perfectly. Blue/purple is like
the ocean (oke, more blue then purple).
But one other theming thing... what about those rounds? and the
deadlines? I would like to mock something up but anything in the next
few (2 till 4) weeks is probably not gonna work for me because of a
school project.

And what about that brainstorming session.. which irc channel will it
be? when will it be held?

So much questions at this point ^_^
