In case you haven't see this. I thought it was interesting to see all of the entries that could have ended up being the main logo for StackOverflow.

@voyager: I think the "and" is "and he thought it was interesting and worth sharing for those who hadn't seen it previously." I thought the logo designs were interesting as well. –  beska Jun 4 '10 at 15:41

possible duplicate of Is it free to use other logos of "stackoverflow design contest"?. I know that it's not an exact dupe, but close enough. –  perbert Jun 4 '10 at 16:09
    
@voyager I thought it was interesting, so I thought I'd share it with those who also might find it interesting, that's all. –  Robert Greiner Jun 4 '10 at 17:32

oh, cool... I didn't see it on the blog. Not trying to expose a secret, I thought it was cool when I stumbled on it the other day and I thought that someone else might also. –  Robert Greiner Jun 4 '10 at 17:30
