[Discuss] Logo Ideas

I would not want the QR code as part of our logo.  It might be cool if we were 
able to add our logo into a QR code for certian occations.  The examples that I 
gave with the Red Cross and Macy's, their logo does not natively include a QR 
code, however the design of their logo made it possible to encorporate a QR code 
on occation.  Our default configration of our logo should not have QR, but we 
could have some sort of large banner of our logo that somehow encorporates a QR.

I also do not like the idea of a QR code in the logo.  I don't mind using them 
where appropriate but having one in the logo itself is not appealing to me.
