Thanks, guys! I'm glad everyone seems excited at the idea. It's just
what we needed.

Indeed. Let's establish the logo has the first goal of the contest.
Regarding SOM. It's a project to promote open media formats,
especially Xiph's, but SVG should be promoted too. SOM will be a mix
of Spread Firefox (campaigns, banners, stuff) and Mozillazine
(community, forums, blogs). We'll be hosting some content, but I
believe we'll rely mostly on Wikimedia Commons to provide content and
to host content under free licenses/PD.
SOM's website will be available at //spreadopenmedia.com -- right now,
it's just running a few tests with the Joomla CMS system, as we don't
have much content yet. It's hosting, however, our 10 top reasons to
why open media matters, including the funny "I'll kill the Bunny"
Yes, the winner of the logo contest should be credited and get reputation :)
It's only fair.
What other questions may I answer? What else can I do to help getting
the contest going?
Best regards to everyone in the list,
Ivo Emanuel Gonçalves,
