I think so - the more we can integrate the things we do and
cross-sell the benefits from one to the other, the stronger
the resulting community.

Maybe it's worth making the cubes stand for more than just
number of articles written - other factors could be:
* got a meo account (and is obviously using it responsibly)
* is on a list
* is on more than one list
* has made a significant contribution (not money, but an idea,
   work on thesite, running ?eo, organiser of beervolts -
   that kindathing)

The more integrated the recognition, the more likely we are
to get people crossing over from one element to another.
