AIDAweb is good and says everything.

I think this is a second topic. The logo is an image which gives the
deep symbolic associations. I like the leaf because it invokes the
beauty and simplicity of nature as well as it's deep complexity. By
linking it with AIDAweb we are picking up on those notions of elegance,
power and fractal nature.
The 'strapline' ('How the web was meant to work' 'Smalltalk is more
fun' or whatever) extends and expands the image with context, like
PostgresSQL does. Now we have a good idea about the logo it is probably
timely to address the strapline. What do you think?
