Re: [school-discuss] ISO Award suggestions and Software Freedom

How about the Open Mind Award.
Open for OSS and for out of the box thinking
Mind for education, learning etc
Open Mind for, well, having an open mind

. How about a "golden doughnut award" - since they're open. I tried to

. Does it have to be "golden"?
. "open apple award" sounds too much like the reset sequence on the early

. Any more esoteric computer terms? All I can think of off the top of my

. More to the human side: Fingers, Brain, Caffeine, perhaps?
