I'm just getting back from vacation.  I know I'm past the deadline, but I 
wanted to concur with the others in my preference for option 1.

[Community] OSLC Logo
Sent by:
community-bounces at open-services.net

There have been several suggestions that we create a logo for OSLC that 
can be used in references from web sites and OSLC implementations (e.g. 
the Eclipse Mylyn OSLC-CM client). Kimberley Peter and Susan Smith of 
IBM's Toronto Design Studio kindly volunteered their talents to 
brainstorming several themes and then refining those into two options. 

The links below point to different treatments/renderings of the two logos 
that could be used in different media forms (e.g. web, color print, black 
and white print, etc.) and to some mockups of the open-services.net home 
page with the examples of the alternative logos included. We intend to 
make a final decision in the coming week or so and appreciate your 
feedback. Please take a look and if you have any input you'd like to share 
-- positive or negative, logo preference, color preferences, etc. -- post 
it back here or send it to me directly at bosworth at us.ibm.com by Friday, 
July 10.

Option 1: Plays off of the "O" in "OSLC" and emphasizes the idea of 
loosely coupled interactions.

Option 2: Inspired by the OSLC ambition of creating new possibilities and 
the incremental nature of OSLC efforts.

Hopefully this is a bit of a fun respite from the rigors of scenario and 
spec authoring!
