For several of these notable people, there are articles on Wikipedia.. 
Some of them have no photo yet, some of the photos could be better 
quality.. In the Netherlands we want more quality pictures of famous 
people. We even have a "werkgroep" for this.. Being a member of this 
werkgroep, I would like to urge our new advisory group members to 
provide us with a few photos.. Photos that will do them justice as 
advocates of an organisation that is very much about free content :)
