tellyourfedorastory fedoraproject org?

yourstory.fedoraproject.org => forum server just for telling cool
stories about Fedora usage? (open for all, uses only a captcha to filter
accounts)

stories.of.fedoralinux.org => nice site that does nothing but tell
stories -- written, audio, video -- about Fedora

Hmmm ... at least these two ideas need humans to parse them, for various
spammish and nicety reasons.  We need a team!  I volunteer.  Anyone
else?

Include the link in every story publicized, so they help provide more
fodder.

Aside from Digg, get a blast into press.redhat.com.

Run stories in the installer?

Get Red Hat Magazine to pick up one occasionally for wider viewing. (+1)

Ensure all stories are under a Fedora-approved CC license so people
can ... use them in presentations!  Reprint them in their dead tree
Linux magazines! Etc.

Since Fedora is such a cool server distro, I bet we can get some really
great stories this way that rival just about anyone else's potential.
We may not have the best "I gave my Granny Fedora 8 and that werewolf
ate her lunch" stories, but sysadmins who like Fedora have cooler toys
anyway.
