Anyone interested in designing a logo for an open source, community
project should check out what Boost is doing right now.  They are
replacing their old, fairly unrecognizable logo with a new one, and
recently theres been tons of discussion on what the new one should be:

The Boost mailing list archives contain all sorts of very useful
information for anyone interested in creating a successful logo (search
for logo).  Besides some very valuable informations, theres a whole lot
of nonsense, and a whole lot of excellent examples of why most
organizations don't let computer scientists and engineers design logos
in the first place.
