Subject: New Website


Due to 8 years of Ruby cruft I can’t get the Jeckyll site running without some major jackhammering. I can’t post a screenshot but here is the proposed logo.

I encourage people to look at all of this and be judicious with -1s. This has been a lot of work, much of the design volunteered by folks at startbootstrap.com. IMO the design is awesome. It will put a good, modern, clean face on the new Mahout.

The logo is a simple cube, not my favorite but I’m not going to -1 my favorite was the M/infinity symbol. If the logo is meant to be a hypercube there are simple ways to illustrate it like some form of this:

Since you’ve already built it can you share a screen shot? The mockup I saw on Slack looked awesome.

Also a logo change is a lot more far reaching so can we have at least a little discussion?
