Yea, that really works. Nice work Twitter. I have the logo at 250x250px. 
That, combined with the fluid layout resolves in any cellphone, tablet, 
or PC screen.

It is grayish. Yea. I knew it was a problem, but I was afraid of doing 
something to make it look lurid. But now that you've made me think about 
it, those two gray background areas need a warm hue. Maybe something 
from the color palette of the old site. That should help.

Well, I wanted the balloon in the background with the Squeak logo in the 
foreground. I hit on the idea of a Warhol print where he repeated a 
single image several times with bright colors, but with low line 
definition. I think it gives a flickering background allowing the Squeak 
logo to float above.

I figure this is a good basic structure for the site: Altitude with 
Bootstrap. The the rest is tweaking. Such as, the pages are just lists 
of links right now, so those pages need more.

I'm not going to lie to you, I'm quite taken with my logo. But, hey, I'm 
a team player. All anybody has to do to make a logo is fill a 250x250px 
box. If people want to submit logo gifs, great. The community can choose 
the one it likes best.
