Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-7020) establish a "Powered by Hadoop" logo
Date Fri, 05 Nov 2010 18:28:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7020?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12928730#action_12928730

Aaron Newton commented on HADOOP-7020:

There are some questions here that I'll try and answer. I'll reiterate that I'd be happy to
see this work find a home, but ultimately whatever you guys decide to do is of course fine;
take it or leave it as they say.

Why did JobTracker need a logo? Well, I was working on some things that linked to it and I
wanted an icon for that link. Simple as that. I wanted to put the logo for it and launch it.
I didn't know the "Apache Way" for when logos are and aren't called for... I also created
a hive logo that got adopted. Here's the original (brief) blog post to that effect: http://www.cloudera.com/blog/2009/04/hive-and-jobtracker-needed-logos/

Why the lightning bolt? Well, I wanted to convey it wasn't a construction hat but a utilities
worker hard-hat. I chose blue probably because I live in California and PG&E's colors
are blue. It was a play on "powered by." I added the lightening bolt to make that more obvious.
Perhaps it's not necessary? Or perhaps there's something more appropriate? I'm totally open
to suggestions (assuming the other issues brought up here are ok).

What's up with the two hues? They're just meant to be highlighting (in the same way that the
elephant itself has several colors and not just solid yellow).

As for other ideas, I actually had several. I can't find my notes now thought. One was just
an image of peanuts in a bag (playing along the lines that elephants like peanuts and are
therefor "powered" by them, har har). Another one was turning the elephant into kind of a
locomotive but I didn't think it would really look good. I had like, half a dozen or more
of these various tangents and ran them past Doug. He liked using the hard-hat work I'd done
previously (c'mon, he's too cute in that over-sized helmet) so I posted it here...
