I think a scathingly brilliant idea would be for every single R-Pi recipient to post a photo of their shiny new board sitting on the front page of the receipt-day"s issue for the most local newspaper at the recipient"s location, and the post should be copied to a single topic thread in /. Oh, and to really rub it in, the board should be booted and have the photo displayed on the screen, infinite regression style.
Is it possible to +10,000 without blowing up their servers? I hope not!
The best things in life aren't things ... but, a Pi comes pretty darned close!
