Are you a corporate foundation member? If so, what level member are you?

If it's any consolation, besides the logo thing on the website, we really
haven't done any promotional efforts, so besides the "Get an OpenID" page,
there really aren't any other logos on the site.

I'd love to see something like djangopeople.net set up for the OpenID
community,  but as Luke said, resources have been the major limiting factor
