Both of you have it *right* on the money :) A more discerning question
is *why* you thought it was awesome.

Poeple might think its obvious, but the answer is *not* a cool logo, nor
any Nakatomi reference.

The real answer is deeper than that, and goes to the heart of why we
feel affinities toward one individual, group, organisation or another.

The purpose is entirely non-technical, and *precisely* to be active in
honing FreeBSD's brand identity, personality and culture moving forward.

If the outcomes are a perception of a community that is approachable and
lighthearted, and encouraging participation, so much the better.

To those who read this thread, ask yourself first: What message do YOU
want to communicate to the world about who we are?

Now make your decisions follow from that :)
