Uhm, 3D modeling is not my kind of job. If someone else does this, OK.
But I was thinking of 3D-*ish* myself, just like the Larry Ewing Tux.
Just the GIMP, but with nice shades and highlights.

I only just realized, that such a flying penguin could be used in a more
"scalable" way: imagine an iceberg full of penguins, all standing in the
same direction, looking at that one penguin that flies away from them,
into the sun. Not very good for a logo (too much to see), but great for
promotional material, and focussing on this Independence spirit you talk
about. And for a logo we could "cut out" the penguin alone, it could
look something like number 4.

Reactions to other reactions (to keep the ball rolling):

David Webster thought that the half-mast Windows flag was a good
concept. I hope he was joking :-) When we only poke fun out of Windows,
nobody would take us serious (except for some Microsoft lawyers, maybe).
OK, now for a cheap cartoon, this could've been something, but for the
Indy logo, nah.

Scott Nimtz wrote me privately that all that he found on the specified

combination of XOOM (responsible for the messages) and Netscape

ones) isn't a bless. Reloading and emptying your cache should help.
