I'm truly impressed with the majority of the submissions. But, being
an opinionated sod, I have favourites. And un-favourites.

Favourites, in no real order:

  #attila - the butterfly concept:
            cartoony, fun, organic, agile

  #jussi - moebius strip:
            scientific, never-ending. Personally I liked best the original
            orange design for its simplicity (the dots harking back to a
            more innocent time of computing); but that's been withdrawn.
            I find the other variants less effective, TBH.

  #brnk - hands:
            the a/e ligature is similar elsewhere, but this combines it with
            a sign of collaboration and consensus.

  #samantha - crayon person[1]:
            fun and professional, energetic, agile, human.

Interesting, wouldn't mind any of these, but not entirely grabbed by them:

  #thiercito's third entry[2]: stylish, simple

  #jrouyer - bubbles: organic, fluid, represents speech and air

  #chall3ng3r[3] - big e: simple, professional elegant.

Comment/debate, welcome :-)
