About feedback on the logo (I didn't find an existing thread on the ML)
I suspect there may be an issue of perceived geographical bias by
centering the map projection on North Atlantic Ocean.

I'm by no means an specialist of this topic, but I know it may exist.
(see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reversed_map for example). As possible
workarounds, I see either :
* no continents display (don't know how good or how boring such an earth
would look)
* or bit funnier: random map orientation ! (each page refresh could
point to another random map from a prerendered pool)

my 0.5 cent,
Pierre
