    I have been hammering over and over again, this is the kind of open source contributions we desperately need. We need artists to make promotional material as well as visual design. We need writers to write about how to use the software from a novice perspective and why someone might want to use the software. We need usability experience designers thinking about the people with disabilities and new users, and how the user might think or feel while using the application.

        I have a family of Mongeese on my desk, but of late it has been pretty hard to find a matching animal.
