Hm... That is a good point. I was thinking about the framwork, and the  
appropriateness of the gears in that context, but Infusion is more  
than just a javascript framework - it's a javascript framework geared  
toward building user interfaces. With that thought, maybe the puzzle- 
piece metaphor of the first set of logos is better.

With that in mind, I'm looking at the first set of logos again, and  
here are my thoughts on those:

- I prefer the first one, with the rounder edges. Gentler, more  
- I think the space between the words and the image should be smaller.
- I repeat that I think the font used for "infusion" is too skinny.

I disagree with this one. Puzzle pieces are not symmetrical, and our  
components are all different. I think a non-symmetrical shape is  
perfectly appropriate here. The orange shape fits just fine with the  
pattern of the whole.
