OKCon was fun. It's a pity that you could not make it: there was even an
'Open Hardware' talk. Many of the conference proceedings are slowly
appearing on okcon.org/2011 now, though.

I'm currently working on a generic image (an early draft attached to this
email), and will try and turn it into a logo very soon.
As for the trac, there are now wg.openliterature and project.openshakespeare
components; perhaps project.openmilton, project.opencorresondence?

The wiki is a good idea for now, and will probably act as a place to draft
ideas for the final texts on the open literature site. I'll post a url when
I have it.

Agreed. Will get on to this.
