Leo Laporte of the TWiT network has a promotional scheme which allows the purchase of a brick facade with logo for the new studio.

It's pricey though; $640 (say approx 90 BTC).  If 10-20 people thought it worthwhile, I'm sure we could convince Leo to accept payment in BTC.  A mod could set up one of those Bitcoin kickstarter-style things.

Basically, I'm wondering whether a sufficient number of people are sufficiently grateful to the TWiT network to pay 5-10 BTC and get this promotion for Bitcoin.  It would be nice to get some good press.

Which article, exactly are you referring to?  If you mean the crap about how bitcoin is a huge threat to the payment model of the internet and is the biggest destructive technology ever, it is just linkbait.  Seriously when are people going to stop linking articles that are poorly written but say exactly what the bitcoin community wants to hear.  Its just sensationalist crap, then again its Jason Calacanis what do you expect?

I like Jason Calacanis, but you have to know what you're getting in for.

The reason Leo seemed suitable is to have a visible positive use for Bitcoin, with a nice person on the Internet who doesn't scare normal people.

The logo seems fairly high resolution.  We could make it a bitcoin logo, potentially with a QR code.

I like the idea of a bitcoin address and a qr code on the front of the brick.

Donations to that address  could go to steve gibson who was really the first enthusiastic supporter of bitcoin from Leo's network.
