Michael completed the first version of the Bumblebee Labs logo tonight and I gotta say, I’m very impressed with it:

Bumblebee Labs Logo

We printed out the inaugural version of the logo on some very nice hand made fabriano paper I had lying around and the effect was striking. Whenever I’ve embarked on some grand new adventure like moving away from home or writing my first non-trivial piece of software, there’s always a point where I can’t manage to convince myself on a gut level that this was all there was to it and it’s all so simple. Surely starting a company must involve more than just two guys, sitting around and figuring out problems that need solving? I know intellectually this is how many a company starts but my gut is run by narrativium, not common sense.

Holding that piece of paper in my hand and feeling the weight of it suddenly made all of this seem more real, more substantial. It may be a minor thing in the scheme of things but it was a sign, to me, of forward motion…
