Here's a logo concept. The concept is a bit literal: SciPy curve, with the
background of a globe and arrows pointing from different locations to a
"central" point.

I posted the code on github, if someone wants to play around with it (it's
not particularly pretty code): https://github.com/tonysyu/SciPy-Central-Logo


Tools used:
    * numpy
    * matplotlib
    * basemap
    * scipy (although this was a bit forced)
