I have a large-scale idea: set up a place and invite people to submit 
there creation illustrating *their own* vision about freedom: photos, 
drawings, 3D art, poetry, short prose, music, video clips, animations, 
clay models, paintings... anything.

As an example, *for me* the best illustration is an image with large 
empty spaces in the wilderness, for someone else could be the sea, 
people gathered at a rock concert and so on.

As a simple implementation I see this possibility: write the text 
"freedom is a feature" using the Fedora font and the Fedora blue for the 
"freedom" and "feature" words (not for "is a") but without actually 
using the "fedora" word anywhere, let people to the connection by
