Thanks to Alessandro Gubitosi, who just send me this poster with PICOL icons, which promotes the Ubuntu in Italy and can be used by the rest of the world. It´s great PICOL can help the great and open Ubuntu project with it´s own openness. It would be great to have PICOL as UI icons in Ubuntu
Alessandro is a member of “Gruppo Promozione Ubuntu” (the Italian Ubuntu Marketing Team). He is active in the fields of green marketing, art direction and web development. You can get more information on Alessandro on his website www.gotanotherway.com.
That´s not all Alessandro did with and especially for PICOL. He also mentioned as an aside that he did PICOL generator. THAT´S AWESOME — I LOVE THE INTERNET. He built it overnight! That´s version 1.1beta and he wants to push it forward
I will keep you updated on the PICOL generator.
By the way this is the first post on this blog matching all categories (Contributor Work, Diagrams, Icons in use, New Icons & [Great] News).

eöööööööööööö — The Vuvuzela is definitely the unofficial symbol for the soccer tournament with teams from all over the world, which takes place in South Africa right now. (Am I allowed to say the original name, which is a trademark? I remember many people got sued the last time)
Whatever. I designed a Vuvuzela icon for the PICOL library which again is publish under a Creative Commons license.
Here you can download the icon in various sizes

David Carswell contributed a Microsoft Visio 2007 stencil incorporating the PICOL SVG iconset (090316). This stencil is an import of the SVG icons, with aspect-ratio protection applied, and is released under the same license as PICOL itself.
You can download the Visio 2007 stencil HERE
I coulnd´t check the file, beacause I have no Visio. If there are any problem please contact David

Pictodeck is just what it sounds like — a deck of pictograms. It’s a collection of over 700 vector pictograms taken from four different sets: PICOL, Android Icons, Pictoico and Freshpixel. Aaron Richard, the creator of Pictodeck, has converted all of these sets and made them available for Keynote users.
Pictodeck is available for download on Aaron Richards website.
