We weren't intentionally in stealth mode; we just hadn't gotten around to putting together a web site yet! But I'm trying to get everything ready in time to make a small splash at the LISA conference in San Diego in a couple of weeks.

Thanks! It's from The Logo Loft, which is one of those web-based logo design outfits. I figured we'd give it a try; if we didn't like any of the concepts they proposed, they offered a 100% satisfaction guarantee. It ended up costing us less than $500 total, and we went through the whole proposal/selection/revision/finalization process within a couple of weeks; very easy, and I like the result. And we own the result, free and clear; no issues about royalties or limits on future use or anything like that. They delivered the result in Adobe Illustrator format, plus versions as GIF, JPEG, EPS, and several other common formats.

Much less hassle, and much less expensive, than when I had the Great Circle Associates logo redesigned a few years ago.

I'm such a CMS geek -- the first thing I looked at on your site was the source. Yay for Drupal!

Yup. It's the first time I've used Drupal; so far, so good, as I explore the various modules and functionality. I enabled the Blog module today, to do that blog post, and I'll probably enable the Forums module shortly. A few annoyances, but I'm perfectly willing to hack the code and the CSS to get what I want, and it seems like a good base to build on.

You probably don't need nearly as much hand-holding as I do, but I found these Drupal video podcasts extremely helpful. Be sure to look into CCK and Views, which are must-have modules (they really should be part of Drupal core).

Looks cool. Don't forget to give us a post-LISA update, OK?
