EDIT - 5 Jun 2015: Thank you very much for an outstanding redesign. I un-downvoted, and like the following: The router hockey-puck is a home run; great re-use of the puck as the letter "O". Simple. Jammin. Bravo. Incorporating a network diagram into the background is a nice touch; although it's practically invisible with such a small image. I'm ...

Another backer to what Mike is saying; the current model doesn't accurately reflect the network engineering field. It seems too playful for the persona this stack is trying to give off. Adding to the recommendations: we generally operated in a more abstract and theoretical model. Perhaps something like this might be something we can incorporate? You may ...

I agree with Mike's feedback. While the logo is pretty, it doesn't quite reflect Network Engineering. I like the concept of the whiteboard network mapping. Might also want to do some very rigid, hierarchical, three layer diagrams. A few more images to add to the mix: CLOS Fabrics, all the rage these days: Defacto Network three layer design: Whiteboard ...

I actually like this design a lot, but I agree with the idea that the logo is not really inspired from network diagrams. I don't think I ever saw someone using curved thinner links (the ones linking the letters) in a network diagram. Maybe for representing console cables but that is very rare. If you are seeking for inspiration on network diagrams, I really ...

I agree completely with Mike. I have included some stock photos that also might serve as inspiration for a better logo and site design. If I may suggest, focus less on wiring and other physical manifestations of networking. While that certainly is a part of what we do, much of our activity deals with conceptual networking ideas: traffic flow, routing, ...

I mean to take nothing away from those who have expressed concerns or alternative ideas. I even agree with them on some points to a degree, but I don't have a need to change the design personally. I don't think most adjustments or an entirely different design will make me any happier. For me, it is the functionality of the site that is more important to me ...

Bad design. Everybody knows that networking is about routing and switching as in :

I agree completely with YLearn above. I think it's one of those things where, if there is a choice, I'd prefer a lot of the things that are being discussed above, but that doesn't actually mean the differences are that important or worth delaying anything for, in my opinion. That said, if they're really shooting for authenticity, they should just ...
