Dear Nadja and others,

I think that we can conclude that a leaf based design is our favorite, 
with first, second in second row and last one (below Swazoo) as most 
preferred choices. And with a simple font. Nadja, what I would propose 
now is to try to make one logo with leaf and a font, but apply it on 
different ways, like in first and last variant, and second too. And in a 
header of website for instance. So that we will have an universal logo, 
applicable in many ways.

Another thought: shall we add 'web' to AIDA too? AIDAweb or something to 
make more clear distinction from Aida opera and that people will know 
what is about here?

Other possibility is as in last logo: a whole name: Aida/Web, Smalltalk 
web application server, but that is long. Maybe simply "Smalltalk for 
the web" or something? Or maybe a current slogan on Aida's website: 
"This is how the Web works!" ?

But again, those are already variants, or "applications" of basic logo 
in different situations.
