I think version 16 is the ONLY original logo we have for this challenge.
It is abstract enough to make a great brand and be reused for variations.
It is simple, straightforward and easily to remember (not to reproduce, to

It's look IMO is perfect for a technical application and community.
It's smart, creative and I LOVE IT :)
Go version 16 :)
