Ok as Tyler is apparently very busy I'll post here some ideas (without
of course any time to implement some)

* Something like the "blue yourself for Drupal 7" campaign[1], asking
people to give some greenish to their avatars in social networks.

* A metapixel[2] image. The idea is to gather as much OSGeo related
images (from FOSS4G and more) and create a (really) big metapixel image
from the OSGeo banner and release it using OpenLayers to navigate to it.
That is to say: you see when you enter the OSGeo logo and lemma and when
you zoom in you can see the community in many different photographs

* Somthing like the Japan LC crazy video[3] with people telling a
"FOSS4G" but asking people from all committees and projects to record
themselves and send the video to produce a video joining all of them.

* Contest for a logo refactoring for the anniversary and then add the
winner to the OSGeo Store t-shirt/etc designs
