I said it on IRC, but I'll say it again - thank you SO MUCH for your work on
this. It looks fantastic!!

One bad link that I found, but it's the brochure-in-progress, so it's A
Known Bug.

That's a great idea. I was actually wondering how we could make the website
and all our brochures/shirts/bags/whatever "theme" together well. I really
think we should push the swirl rosebud. It's unqiue and, well, very
Portland. ;) I'll send you the original Inkscape doc Matto sent our way

Sounds good - the more places to encourage people to sponsor, the better. 
Eventually, we'll be adding in more info about the conference proper
(information about Portland, transportation, fun activities as well as
registration information, which may be a 2 step process this year).  I
imagine most of this will be on the wiki,but don't forget to plan space for
that at the very least.

Thanks again, Allison!
