The "We're Linux" Video Contest

| If you've been alive and aware of mass media over the last twelve months,
| you've probably seen television commercials from Apple and Microsoft touting
| their operating system. From Apple's ubiquitous "I'm a Mac" to Jerry Seinfeld
| to Microsoft's "I'm a PC" retort, operating system commercials have been
| flooding the airways. Except one OS has been notably absent â Linux.
| While the Linux Foundation would love to spend millions promoting Linux on
| TV, it's simply not our style (or in our budget). Even more importantly,
| Linux isn't a top-down, commercially controlled operating system. It's a
| grassroots product of mass collaboration. That's why we're sponsoring a
| community contest to create a Linux video that showcases just what Linux
| means to those who use it, and hopefully inspires many to try it.

| The winning designer will get a free trip to Tokyo, Japan to participate in
| the Linux Foundation Japan Linux Symposium in October 2009. The Linux
| Foundation doesn't have the money for a major, or for that matter even a
| minor, television advertising campaign. But, at the very least, the winning
| ad will get some news and online exposure for both the winner and Linux.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
