Thank you for organizing this Mehrdad!

A sound logo may be one of the solutions to the need to know where
information comes from: we should *not* be invisible (or 'inaudible'?) now
that our information is not only read but also heard through sound devices.

The issue of (in)visibility was also recently addressed in the interesting
conversation between Guillaume, Nicole and Nikkie
<> in the first WikiMove video-podcast.
