Do you like the ants idea for the group icon?
Any other suggestions?

Ants are nice

BUT: are they independent? :-)

They are….

Contrary to the first impression they cooperate, don’t respect any hierarchy and find out what to do/where to go by local interactions among them… at least that is what I read in a book! :)

Warning: It is not about ants… Quite interesting book

Ants are great for anything :) But, are they really independent?
Honestly: I like ants from the same reason that I like wikis and tags.

I don’t thing they are independent on the sense that they need each other to survive but who is?

The aspect that inspired me was how much they can accomplish without any hierarchy and working together. Not that the simple message: work together or die alone doesn’t apply here! :)

After all, I think independence is the power to decide more than anything else.

I actually had a good time reading this book. To be perfectly honest the part that I didn’t like much was when he decided to put on his “IT” hat… You can actually read a few chapters of the book on amazon before deciding…

For anybody interested I found out that the author has the book available for download (for free):

Kevin Kelly [kk.org]

But I just realized that I may have read about the ants on another book [amazon.com]

The first one cites the second I think…

EDIT: You can preview the second book on google books [books.google.com]

(by the way I think this second one is actually the one I didn’t like the IT/software aspect of it)

Any feedback or suggestions are welcome! Including a replacement for the ants theme :)

EDIT: I just realized that the Trolls may have a problem with Qt logo so for now:
noqt
