First, I really like the new logo -- the improvement is obvious when
you look at old and new side by side.

The only concern I have is that it looks kid-oriented.  Currently, I
think our number one perception issue is that Racket is only for
teaching programming, and I wouldn't want our logo to contribute to
that misimpression.  (Compare the clojure, or scala, or node.js logos,
for example.)

Regardless of that, I think we should build on the logo in other ways.
 For example, we could use the "r" in the title of the web page, even
if we don't use the whole logo.  Or "we" could create a "d" in the
same style, and use it for a "dr" logo for DrRacket.
