Re: NetBSD Mascot Proposal
The next step is to add colors and bright on it. Any thoughts?
Hi, I preferred the original item 3 draft (also together with item 1),
as it felt more organic and animal than this one. We are probably gonna
be surrounded by robots in the future (and we're spending our time
living inside them already), so please let's avoid having a mascot
remind us of them yet again.
The original beastie from (mckusick.com) is more of a character from
Tweety & Sylvester than a "transformer". I suppose the eye look could
be made less frightening in that manner, and I suggest that the sign
with the hand also got changed to something that does not involve
displaying any pride nor any direct interaction with the audience. My
point is that the mascot already personifies some intention or some
movement by itself: a mascot should not consciously do advocacy.
In short, I like the idea of a little animal resembling the original
beastie running after light. Much less a reminder of Bill Joy's fear of
our future (which might not need us).
