I hate the term, but the logo should be somewhat web 2.0ish in that we are aiming for an overall site design with simplicity at its core. The site is for techies - guys who are proud of being geeks. What I mean by "geeky without being cheesy" is that it can be more exciting than the average corporate logo, but I'm not a fan of the logo at (…r/logo.gif) I debate between whether logo should include an actual dictionary.
