A friend of mine has a poster that says "the strongest 
human emotion is not love or hate; it's the desire to 
change someone's copy" with the word "change" scratched 
out and a scratched-out synonym for "change" is written 
below, followed by another synonym, etc. for the length 
of the page.

Now, I would imagine this mailing list has a lot of designers 
on it, and I've never heard of two designers having the same 
idea (except in cases of plagerism, or when the design is 
"just in the air" which usually means the plagerism is popular 
but few know who originally did it.) I can't imagine a 
designer looking at another's idea and not wanting to change 
it a little.

But I can imagine the Quest_for_the_Perfect_CSS_Logo stretching 
on to infinity, supported by legions of designers, some not 
even born yet. It looks like bad science fiction so far: in 
the year 4096, Jor Ka-el asks that the deadline be stretched 
out just once more, because s/he (we're not sure anymore) 
has come up with the perfect hologram of a cascading style 
sheet logo that sings and dances and even smells just right.

Flickercladding not included.

So, I think we should either decide on one logo soon (as in 
before the upcoming year), or just make it an annual thing 
to decide on a new logo for the upcoming year.
