Well, when I asked for a logo for my presentation in Dublin (ApacheCon 
EU), a friend of mine asked a friend of him (foaf ...) who created a 
really cool logo - attached -.

I like the idea of a tree, and you may connect it to the Tree of 
Knowledge - yo know, the apple,, tyhe snake, the Original sin, whatever 
...- if you need to add some reference to Eve. But when he designed the 
tree, it was just because I presented Ldap as a way to structure data as 
a tree of entrees - ooops entries - :)
