I was washing up the dishes and noticed how many corporate mugs advertising other institutions we have in circulation.

We ought to produce one of our own. It should bear our location, opening hours, website and could also include lists of equipment, maker night dates, etc. Maybe it should have different pictures, like the business cards.

The idea is to get the mugs into office tea rooms all throughout the city. For example, it would be very easy to hit the university and the science park once you know where the kitchens are in each building (the same place on each floor) because they are generally open. Staff tea rooms are much harder to get to because they are not used to entertain visitors.

For extra points, each one could be uniquely branded. "This mug belongs to UoL Law Department. Did you know you are only 12 minutes walk from DoESLiverpool where you will find many experts who are intricately aware of the dire consequences of software patents?" or "This mug is a gift from DoESLiverpool to the Business School. Come and find out about the tech the Internet of Things is made of from people who aren't trying to sell you their latest closed source incompatible solution, because they haven't got one."

(This could have gone in issue #480 but I think that one should be broken out into separate actions.)
