The day is coming close! ~16 days from now at our current rate.
Please post ideas on how we should party.
Live session (Hangout style) about Askubuntu, how it came to be and what does it mean to the Ubuntu community.
Shirts! Ubuntu/Askubuntu shirts!!
Video showing with awesome graphics the Askubuntu site, some of the most active users in the site (And also robots like Jorge) and promoting the site (And even the 13.04 version which most likely be on the same day as the release).
Information about the site. For example, did you know askubuntu has more questions, users and visits than Unix & Linux.This has to count for something when trying to get a hold of the popularity around Ubuntu. It is also the 4th in amount of visits, users and questions per day. 5th in amount of questions. Something similar to the one that was done to github where it showed all popular git projects, amount of clones, developers, etc..
Just for one day...
We could also act silly...
Just a thought. How about have a question on meta about what the 100,000th question will be? A similar thing was done for the 1,000,000th Wikipedia entry. Also, you could have a pool on when the 100,000th threshold will be reached, like Wikipedia did...
New Idea: Remember to update wikipedia page. It says as of September 2012, we have 70k questions. It should be updated to reflect 100k milestone. Also maybe create a new section for milestones, or a expand the history section.

Someone make a VH1 remember the xx's spoof for AskUbuntu.
Ubuntu is not an island standing independent of the greater Linux/GNU/Unix community but is very much a part of that community. Keeping AskUbuntu as it's own island is misguided and ultimately counterproductive. Ubuntu users including newbies are ultimately enriched by exposure to that greater community.
Stackoverlow.com which was the original, and still is the flagship, Stackexchange site provides a prime example of a vibrant diverse community that has not splintered into a multitude of Java, C# and Hadoop sub-fora. It is a vibrant community where C, C++, and Java proponents interact and contribute to everyone's benefit.
