...opinion...

I definitely don't like the first one. I would like the 2cnd one more if it
did not have the dots/eyes. My first impression is that it has something to
do with the "following eyes" (eyes follow the mouse pointer).  This
animation/interaction is like a "hello world" for it's kind. Why do you need
the dots/eyes?  It does not add any value. If you are looking to make a
character then you could have the eyes "open" when necessary. And why does
the first "o" have a dot/eye?

fwiw, I can see a cool, simple, flash-like animation (I am sure this is not
original :) with this font:
[ this is a quick splash intro animation ]
- A line (the catepillar) quickly crawls from left-offscreen (off-browser)
to quickly crawl through the letters of "cocoon".
- a trail was left to leave the word cocoon on screen
- when it comes out of the "n" - a bunch of different butterflies come out
and fly down/off the page

best,
-Rob

Coccon and other Apache project in my professional work, I much refer the
new logo. It may not have the "cool" effects, but it is far better suited to
"branding" the technology and definately is easier to integrate in to a
page. Honestly, the new logo makes it easier for me to "sell" the technology
to my clients. Stefano has it right - simplicity is key for logo design.
