First off - great work logo designers!  I admire your willingness to stick 
your neck out with your designs.  I may claim to be too busy or not talented 
enough, but in fact I'm just too chicken to do something crazy like that ;)

I really hope that refinements can happen with the help of the Web Committee, 
other members and maybe even with some professional advice i.e. from a 
third-party designer.  Wouldn't that be great if we could swing something 
like that?

Either way, I'm confident that we can all help the resulting logo improve 
enough to be proud of, if improvements are generally thought to be necessary.  
I'm also sure that as we start to use the logo in our own ways, on documents, 
banners, websites, etc. - we will find areas that need improving - regardless 
of how many iterations they may have gone through.

Again, thanks a lot guys for submitting logos.


p.s. Is it just me or does Aaron's RTF document not come across as valid rich 
text?  At least my install of KWord doesn't like it.  It's a binary file, but 
in my text editor I was still able to read his descriptions of the logo which 
was helpful.  Perhaps it got stored in a Word doc format by accident?
