It would be nice if the mbed group had some promotional gear, possibly with the pin-out diagram as an image.
I have found that these types of things can promote some conversations, friendships and collaboration in the past.
But there seems to be no mbed on that.
I actually spent way too long making the artwork for something unofficial last night, and ordered a batch. It was inspired by Dave's comment on having something to give to people who make projects that are cool enough to get posted on blogs like hackaday (see http://mbed.org/blog/entry/119/). Won't tell you quite what it is quite yet though :P
What sort of things do you (anyone) think would be awesome? I'm open to ideas!
Any ideas we end up making, the originator automatically gets some! btw, no I don't think mbed branded iPhones are a good idea, sorry :D
I quick promo hack on CafePress.com would do fine. It's a little pricey for the purchaser, but so easy to implement.
That should work until you get sponsorship for Nascar or something similar.
I'm studying mechatronics at the University of Western Australia where we use arduinos and AVR butterflys. (Well that's all I've been exposed to so far)
I'm a big fan of the mbed and I'd like to see it used around here. I'd be very willing to hand out some promotional material like pens, keychains, flyers and/or documentation to lecturers and staff.
A referral program with rewards would probably encourage users to spread the word a bit more as well.

mbed, the fastest way to prototype with ARM based microcontrollers.
