There are pages with chronological views on the artwork of Fedora,
complete with screenshots and related things.  Maybe we should do the
same for remixing.  Try to contact all the people who have done
remixes of some kind, and get a chronological view on this, starting
with the OLPC and moving on to the CC remix, etc...  Perhaps even with
statements from companies that do internal mixing.

Then, we need to make sure it gets some viewage, though I'm not sure
about how to go about that.  This will at least give us a serious
talking point about Fedora and remixing without having to be rude to
an obnoxious Ubuntu fan who wants to claim that Canonical made the
phrase up.
