DataPortability Launches New Logo Contest

The fledgling DataPortability workgroup, led by Chris Saad, had a bit of a panic attack in February when they received a Cease & Desist letter from RedHat over their alleged use of the Fedora logo.

Instead of fighting it in court, the workgroup decided to ditch the old logo and hold a new logo contest instead. The winner would get a lot of attention, and a number of blogs and startups threw in prizes of their own (including us).

The competition is now in its final stages, and it’s ready for everyone to vote on the logo they like the best. The public voting begins on April 15, at 12pm (PST), and ends on Friday, April 18, at 11:59pm (PST). Get more information about the contest here, and vote here.

We’re hosting the site with Media Temple but have no financial stake in the organization. Special thanks goes to Fred Oliveira and his team over at Webreakstuff for their work on the site.
