All our logos are not square, but I just made you one :) here you go
is 125 x 125 px big enough? otherwise, I can upload a svg file also

I think it's a good idea to be able to link those marketing materials in
friendfeed, or add favourite pictures from other people.
Since I am not a regular flickr user, I am not familiar with those
features. And youtube's blocked in China. Actually we will be working on
some videos to promote SFD in 2011, youtube account is probably
necessary. There is a software freedom day account: from
softwarefreedomday.eu. can we contact the owner to be able to post
videos sharing the same group / account as them? :)

Sounds great! I will definitely introduce ANSOL to the board and see
their feedback, will keep you posted later!
