Subject [BLOG Post Proposal] Logo Contest Update
Date Fri, 27 Jan 2012 05:54:00 GMT
Here's my blog post proposal, I will post it tomorrow if no one opposes.

Logo Contest Update:

The logo contest was a major milestone for our project. The community
and PPMC members came together and voted on a logo, and were in-sync
for the entire ride. The community and PPMC members both chose #42 and
#49 as the top choices in the first round. This was a clear sign that
the community and PPMC are in-sync. This contest has shown how
thriving and active this community is, and suggests it will continue
to be. Not only has this contest been evidence of the cohesion of the
community as a unit, but the sheer amount of topics and active
community members engaging in these discussions have made this a great
project to be a part of.

There a lot of awesome discussions going on, and some of those
discussions are even a little bit difficult, but they are still
incredibly productive. There was a bit of discussion surrounding the
impact of the logo and how it would reflect as the image for our
project. Of the top two logos, #49 by Julien Brehier, was considered
to be viewed as a fallen "F", or a sinking ship. Others thought it
represented an A, merged with an F, and peaking for success (my
personal favorite). This was discussed in the second round of voting.
While #42 came out on top in the second round, #49 did have a top spot
with the community for the first round. A very good accomplishment, I
must say, for Julien. Congratulations!

Now that the contest has wrapped up, the next step is to potentially
make some small tweaks to the logo. Some discussion has been made
regarding the color of the logo, and even the placement of the word
"apache" in the logo. If you subscribe to the flex-dev mailing list,
you can follow along as these developments unfold.

These are some exciting times for Apache Flex, and I look forward to
being a part of this project. In addition, everyone involved should be
proud and excited to be part of this project and its future.
