these are new to me. I'll add it there.

now, y'know i cant go off logos without some personal remarks...

i think that logo is nice, but the only flaw is that there's nothing in it that reminds people of what it stands for, i.e. Clozure Common Lisp.

if i dare to suggest, it'd be nicer if the parens are expanded to include the full words, and i think perhaps the words Clozure Lisp.

o and Isaiah, i agree with others that your logo is plain. The area i think can use some improvement are:

(1) hard to make out that it is anything. Even if the image is shrinked, the way you lisp letters doesn't come close to spelling LISP.
(2) what is this logo for? lisp? Common Lisp? particular implementation of Common Lisp? or just general lisp?
(3) a lil personal esthetic taste is that the paren corner seems too jarring with the round lisp style you are using.

btw, the image hosting u using has lots of ads.
