So, who is working on branding, logo and identity for the OStatus network *as a whole*? Mastodon is a nice name and has a logo, but it's a server, not the network. We shouldn't be saying "I'm on Mastodon", but "I'm on OStatus". But it needs a friendlier brand. How do we do this in a decentralised way? It's like trying to rebrand the concept of email.
