Which brings up the following topic: Should we have a new logo?

IMO, yes. Neither the Jabber Blub, nor the XMPP logo (what should that  
even be? It doesn't look like anything you can define) are compatible  
with the masses. IMO, we need something that can be made a plush toy  
of, that has something to do with XMPP (an animal which travels long  
distances maybe, so maybe some bird? Maybe a carrier pidgeon would  
suit, as it travels long distances to transport messages, like XMPP).  
Additionally, a mascot is far better memorizable and recognizable than  
some strange logo like we have for XMPP.
