(08:15:11 PM) vorian_: ?
(08:15:14 PM) meatballhat: sure
(08:15:20 PM) PWill: Logos: does anybody have any ideas to improce the logo that they want me to implement?
(08:15:23 PM) meatballhat: as Vorian posted on the forums
(08:15:26 PM) PWill: oh
(08:15:42 PM) meatballhat: er...
(08:15:48 PM) vorian_: http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=330869
(08:15:51 PM) meatballhat: PWill: what's that? :-)
(08:16:13 PM) PWill: I didn't see that you had started talking about logos
(08:16:13 PM) PWill: heh
(08:16:23 PM) vorian_: PWill: :D
(08:16:33 PM) meatballhat: in my work on the DIY Marketing Site http://diy.devubuntu.com , I was approached by the Marketing Director from Canonical, Ms. Christina Armstrong (CJA)
(08:16:42 PM) PWill: I was just gonna see if anybody has any other ideas that they want me--or themself-- to implement in the logo.
(08:16:55 PM) vorian_: PWill: lets table that for now
(08:17:03 PM) PWill: k
(08:17:11 PM) meatballhat: she took the position in the last quarter of '06, and has literally no prior exposure to Desktop Linux
(08:17:25 PM) meatballhat: ...although she has over 15 years' experience in Marketing... :-)
(08:17:31 PM) PWill: heh
(08:17:43 PM) meatballhat: she emailed me in response to a post I made to the MT mailing list
(08:18:05 PM) meatballhat: to let me know that she'd like some minor changes made to how we were using the Ubuntu logo
(08:18:17 PM) meatballhat: she further let me know that as part of her new appointment...
(08:18:29 PM) meatballhat: she'd be tightening up Trademark Policy quite a bit
(08:18:37 PM) theidiotthatisme: Hmm...
(08:18:38 PM) meatballhat: in an effort to better control the Ubuntu brand
(08:18:56 PM) meatballhat: ...all with the goal of presenting a cleaner, more unified image
(08:19:05 PM) meatballhat: ...which is nothing if not good marketing practice
(08:19:06 PM) vorian_: good idea, really.
(08:19:10 PM) hackle577: i see
(08:19:18 PM) theidiotthatisme: It is a good iea, but I always liked the community image Ubuntu presented
(08:19:29 PM) meatballhat: ...So....
(08:19:40 PM) PWill: i agree theidiotthatisme
(08:19:42 PM) meatballhat: many have protested to my initial proddings :-) ... and...
(08:20:16 PM) meatballhat: have said that $SomeOtherTeam and $ThatOtherTeam have already violated the trademark policy...
(08:20:17 PM) goatdad13: I have 10 yrs in mktg and pr and she is dead on
(08:20:31 PM) meatballhat: ...so why can't we?
(08:20:32 PM) ***vorian_ blushes
(08:20:34 PM) PWill: If she has no Linux experience, which means she doesn't have experience with the community, how can she make decisions for the community? </ rant>
(08:20:35 PM) meatballhat: well... :-)
(08:20:52 PM) meatballhat: PWill: it's a valid point... from a Linux community perspective...
(08:21:12 PM) meatballhat: but it doesn't fit in well with Ubuntu/Canonical's marketing aspirations
(08:21:15 PM) goatdad13: community feel is great however if we want to reach the masses we need to present a unified look
(08:21:18 PM) theidiotthatisme: I agree PWill. I understand that Ubuntu would like to be both a community and commercial offering, but I would rather avoid another whole Firefox trademark fiasco
(08:21:26 PM) PWill: heh
(08:21:31 PM) PWill: IceWeasel...
(08:21:48 PM) ***jacobmp92 feels guilty for publicizing the Firefox/Mozilla/Debian story on Digg
(08:21:52 PM) vorian_: We are working on becoming an official arm of Ubuntu, and we need to abide by the rules and regs.
(08:21:53 PM) meatballhat: theidiotthatisme, PWill: both of you are representing a large part of the Ubuntu usur community
(08:22:01 PM) meatballhat: vorian_ : precisely
(08:22:04 PM) hackle577: vorian: agreed
(08:22:12 PM) PWill: jacobmp92: I dugg it...
(08:22:12 PM) goatdad13: ditto
(08:22:15 PM) meatballhat: this isn't a matter of preference, but of setting a good example.. (or whatever...)
(08:22:27 PM) jacobmp92: right
(08:22:33 PM) hackle577: meatballhat: well played good sir
(08:22:40 PM) hackle577: :-D
(08:22:41 PM) meatballhat: the Linux community at large is already suffering from enough "splitting"
(08:22:49 PM) meatballhat: hackle577: touche
(08:23:01 PM) PWill: heh. Debian
(08:23:04 PM) vorian_: the *buntu synromes
(08:23:05 PM) jacobmp92: unification is key to fixing Bug #1
(08:23:14 PM) meatballhat: the Circle Of Friends may be a familiar site to *us* .... but...
(08:23:18 PM) goatdad13: as a newbie to Ubuntu
(08:23:27 PM) meatballhat: it's hardly a Nike Swoosh or Betty Crocker Spoon
(08:23:29 PM) theidiotthatisme: I do understand. Splitting is never good for a community.
(08:23:32 PM) meatballhat: B-)
(08:23:50 PM) theidiotthatisme: I recognize the Ubuntu Logo before the Betty Crocker Spoon O:-)
(08:23:55 PM) meatballhat: LOL
(08:23:57 PM) PWill: haha
(08:24:08 PM) vorian_: thing of the windows logo,
(08:24:13 PM) vorian_: how many variations?
(08:24:22 PM) PWill: 0
(08:24:27 PM) vorian_: SuSE
(08:24:28 PM) PWill: but they all suck, anyways
(08:24:28 PM) meatballhat: so we can all agree to grumble and accept it as a necessary step, right? :-D
(08:24:38 PM) hackle577: yeah
(08:24:40 PM) theidiotthatisme: I understand. I also believe that as an official arm of Ubuntu (or trying to become one) we should definitely follow their standards and guidelines
(08:24:40 PM) theidiotthatisme: yes
(08:24:51 PM) PWill: yeah
(08:24:56 PM) jacobmp92: i agree
(08:25:00 PM) hackle577: agreed
