Yeah good point.  Funny thing is I was thinking about something similar 
when the old Eve name was there.

Can she put up here logos into confluence or can you do it for her? This

Here's a few odd ideas off the top of my head:

1). an upside-down tree
2). fractal of a tree growing downward
3). a hatchet with feathers on it (used for scalping by American Indians)

4). ahhhh an American Indian tee pee with nodes (or feathers) in the teepee

5). A picture of stefan zoerner :)

Ok I ran out of ideas fast.
