Hi all,
I voted for 5, 7, 8 and 10. I liked nearly all logos, so i did choose by
exclusion. 1 and 3 where nice eye-catchers, but i didn't find much
relation to the project. Second may be a nice backround picture, but i
think it's not scaleable at all. Number for droped out because of
scalability, too. The sixth i liked, but i find it too nerdlike, reminds
me somehow of startrek... Number 9 dropped out because i don't see a
direct connection with the tux. This project is about free hardware, not
software (despite the fact that we need software, too...)  Proposal 11 i
can't connect to the project well, too.

Number five i choose because of its eye-catcher abilities. For scaling
small one may have to use the phoenix alone, without the device and the
whirls underneath. Number 7 i liked because auf it's simplicity. But i
don't know, if i have seen something like that already somewhere. I
think proposal 8 does connect at best with our devices. Maybe the broken
chain should be symbolised a little bit more clear. The 11th i chose
because it connects well to the fact that its about a hardware project,
the symbol alone is nice to use at small scales and i haven't seen much
symbols like that already (high recognizability)

so far, my 2 cents...
