I like the idea of collage -- certainly the current Python logo
(twin snakes, Mayan flavor -- or is that Incan?) would look
right at home in some Euro context (it comes from the
Netherlands after all, just like New Amsterdam -- only later
I somewhat like the idea of a logo branding *a conference*
more than the idea of Europython in the abstract. Something
more Vilnius in tone, a python entwined in a glass ship or
something. As the conference moves about, the logo could
be refreshed each time, always with some local color, just
Given the new Python logo already anchors the official
website, I feel like permanent branding of the Pycon series
is likewise unnecessary, in terms of insignia or decals
(calling Pycon is likely a keeper).
