Nobody is advertising for Linux and the FLOSS ecosystem. The community needs to step up. Let's make ourselves better known. A new community effort, called Open Source Advertisement Network, wants to revive this idea. It collects for-free banner and text ads, which are to be displayed on personal blogs and community web sites. No money involved.

This undertaking is in need for help, as collecting these 125x125 banners isn't a simple task. Quite a lot even small projects have marketing materials of some kind, but it's difficult to uncover. So if you know a nice graphic to be used for extra publicity, or want to advertise your own free / libre / open source software, then please contribute a banner. Submitting is extremely simple.

Will still in its infancy, O.S.A.N. is already looking for blog owners to embed the banners into their web sites. It's super simple to do and very unequivocally states your support for the Linux/FLOSS community.
