Nice job Carlos!

Designing by committee completely sucks. I'm not opposed to the idea
of a contest. I would vote on criteria that includes these basic

- forget about Fx or anything close to Adobe identity
- no apache feathers
- simple, impactful
- needs to work as line art (black and white)
- effective gradients can work in a non line art version (note html5 logo)
- works at smaller sizes
- consideration to "works as a square"
- word mark approach preferable
- I need to "connect" with it in some appropriate fashion

around the fact that Flex now belongs to the community. What do you think?
