      Description

      We need a totem for our t-shirt that is yet to be printed. O'Reilly owns the Clyesdale. We need something else.

      We could have a fluffy little duck that quacks 'hbase!' when you squeeze it and we could order boxes of them from some off-shore sweatshop that subcontracts to a contractor who employs child labor only.....

      Or we could have an Orca (Big!, Fast!, Killer!, and in a poem that Marcy from Salesforce showed me, that was a bit too spiritual for me to be seen quoting here, it had the Orca as the 'Guardian of the Cosmic Memory': i.e. in translation, bigdata).

        Added an orca to site and to refguide. Added attribution for the image to NOTICES.txt and to refguide in index.

        Its not pretty how I've added it. Feel free to do fixup.

        Resolving as done. Only took a few years (smile).

        From the above comments, sound like consensus was page 1 of the PDF. Do we want to add http://www.vectorfree.com/jumping-orca into the vote too? Or stay with page 1?

        Like do you agree on this orca (page 1) as a logo yes/no.

        Or

        Between those 4 orcas rate them 1 to 4 (and then we compile the results)?

        Is the orca on page 1 of the PDF free of rights?

        Perfect then.

        Let's start a vote on the mailing list.

        2 options.
        [ ] You are fine with an Orca
        [ ] You are not fine with an Orca

        User mailing list? Or dev only?

        If we can decide on the orca representation, this will move us another step on. It would allow us deploy the representation now.

        JMs proposals all have the same stylized Orca representation. lgtm, +1 Let's move forward. As you say, we can tweak the positioning later.

        I like the #2 and #3. I think they are fine as they are as suggestions. We can tidy up later.

        We're just down to deciding on an embodiment for the logo.

        I'd like to suggest voting on the representation of the orca only, not an 'apache hbase' + orca combination. Trying to vote on the latter will have us in the weeds: "No, it should be on the left!", "nN, on top!!!!".... If we can decide on the orca representation, this will move us another step on. It would allow us deploy the representation now. Work on how the two are combined can come later. It will also vary with context (orca above, orca to the side, orca big or orca small).

        As I read this issue we have consensus on the orca as mascot. We're just down to deciding on an embodiment for the logo.

        This issue has been going on for a while. How about we take what the folks working on this issue think is their preferred option and bring it over to dev@ for a straight up and down vote? If it passes, we have our mascot and updated logo and we can bring this one home.

        I think attempts at putting orca on existing logo will always be awkward since addition is being done after the fact.

        I agree with Enis, the mean orca looks like it's going to do something nefarious with all your data. That said, the overall design makes it much clearer that it's a whale (versus a few of the more abstract proofs that, as Lars pointed out two years ago, look embryonic). Perhaps the design team can muster an orca in a better mood, Stack?

        The red one is not bad (purple too cartoony and the other too complicated).

        On Marcy's latest, I think first set while graphically clean, they have lost too much detail and hard now to identify as an orca in particular. Option 5 is not bad but not sure this an orca either w/ the blunt nose. I'd say option 6 the best of the lot.

        Looking around more it looks like we could 'buy' these as is:

        I like circle. I like the monochormatic take. I wonder if black and white might not be better since then its more identifiably an orca. It does make me think of a hockey team for some reason. It doesn't seem to go well w/ the 'apache hbase'. Maybe inverted and on right side would help and perhaps smaller. Tell your buddy thanks Marcy for helping move this along.

        I'd guess that the one on the left is a dorsal fin (on the back) and the other is a pectoral fin (on the side); it's a side view of the Orca.

        ... and no, I didn't know the words for those off the top of my head, I looked them up.
