Logo considerations
Message ID:
Hats off to the designer of the gimel symbol - the associations with 
anarchy are probably right for perl6. But to be honest, a letter didnt 
quite inspire me. Since, I dont want to criticize without providing 
other ideas, here are some thoughts.

Logos can contain meaning. I am not sure whether the Camel was chosen 
for a meaning, or because it was something to put on a book cover.

But one could say, it is an animal that goes into a desert where no 
others can. Sort of going where no one has gone before.....

There seem to be a lot of animals attached to software things, such as a 
camel, but also a penguin and a parrot.

So how about choosing another animal for perl6?

My choice would be a lion, perhaps one lazing in the sun. The meaning 
that it is lazy, but it has raw power when it needs, and is the king of 
the jungle.

Alternatively, if we stay away from animals, then how about something to 
do with parallelism, or super-positioning, or even a strange attractor, 
since perl6 can be strange and yet it is attractive.
