I fancy a Ubuntu mug, but I'm not buying one unless it's made here in Staffordshire. We have a local pottery industry to support, you know! Does anyone know where they're made?

David Friedman's observation is that there are two technologies for producing automobiles in America. One is to manufacture them in Detroit, and the other is to grow them in Iowa. Everybody knows about the first technology; let me tell you about the second. First, you plant seeds, which are the raw material from which automobiles are constructed. You wait a few months until wheat appears. Then you harvest the wheat, load it onto ships, and said the ships eastward into the Pacific Ocean. After a few months, the ships reappear with Toyotas on them.

That's just silly; we all know they grow on trees!

Are you seriously interested in organising a group buy for ubuntu branded mugs?

We are doing a number of ubuntu related things, we started with case badges, now we're looking into extra CDs for LoCos and we may want to look into other type of things such as mugs, pens you know the kinds of things.

Do let me know if you need any advice on setting such a thing up although I did write this guide and directory for others to do this kind of thing:
