And, also congratulations to Darrin Thompson!  He's the one that  
originally came up with the idea: http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/haskell-cafe/2008-December/051939.html

The page is at http://community.haskell.org/~eelco/results.html  (I  
hope the community server will survive, I expect so since the images  
are hosted at the main Haskell server.)

The next step is to decide what the next steps are ;)  We could have  
polls all year deciding by committee on every little detail, but that  
will most likely not only kill all creativity, but also the  
willingness to vote.

In my mind, the competition was mainly about deciding for a new emblem  
to be featured on Haskell.org and to be used on t-shirts and websites  
as people please.  The font to be used to write 'Haskell', a slogan,  
etc, are probably not issues that need to be decided on and would only  
make the whole process a lot more complex.

Given the winner, the possible variations are limited to color (oh,  
boy), coloring (lambda accented, bind accented or all the same) and  
possible font-like things such as the line shapes (much like George  
Pollard did with his variant, entry #50, placed 9th).  My preference  
would be to have one person with sense of (and education in, if  
possible) design make some nice looking variations and have a second  
(final) round of voting, but, we could also do the wiki-thing again ;)
