It great to read this kind of constructive opinions. You did get what 
we're trying to express: flexibility, cross platform and kind of web 2.0 
The problem that we had while creating concepts was that the is no clear 
vision for what "new" apache flex will be, what message "Apache Flex" 
brand should carry and how we want it to be perceived. It's hard to do 
creative and valuable branding without defining core brand values and 
clear brand message. There were some hints about flexibility, cross 
platform, community and we tried to capture that. We had 24 hours to 
create concepts so there was no time for me (as flex developer) to draft 
my vision/definition of apache flex as a brand. Because of that I asked 
my creative team to focus on what we know and I tried not to limit them.
