Thanks for the suggestion.  We can consider it for next time we do a billboard, if this one is at all successful at attracting out goals.  This billboard is actually in the pipeline now, and we're almost to our goal of reaching the funding for it.  Anyone else want to pitch in a few dolars? -- we are only short $430 now to make this epic billboard a reality!https://www.noisebridge.net/wiki/Billboard

Sounds awesome. I have one suggestion: use less whitespace on the billboard. I've driven by many billboards on the Bay Bridge approach and had a near impossible time reading the second line of print while all that whitespace sat around looking dainty.
