Survival Podcast Icon
« on: September 22, 2008, 11:02:03 AM »
Here is something that I was thinking about. Most online places where people gather have a common symbol to represent their group. Zombie Hunters have the ZS logo. I am sure you have thought aboout this as well, Jack. I would like to suggest perhaps having the Walking Liberty symbol as an icon. The reason I suggest it is because to me, Liberty walks, it doesn't sit or stand. Liberty is a moving thing. It makes us feel young, and it is a beautiful thing. Also, its symbol has ties to the silver coin which many of us are now collecting as an investment against the dollar. So preparedness is in there too. You might not like the money aspect of it, and its not perfect, but something I was just thinking about as an idea for the site and forums. In the coin the sun is rising, as if to say for these hard times 'This too shall pass', and there will be a new day. Just my opinion. What does everyone else think?

Edit - Grammar.

I like that for a community symbol for the forum and the message behind it.  I actually have my guy doing up logos for the site itself.  I plan to post them soon and let yall vote on it to help me pick the logo for the site.

On the liberty thing, I am going to work on that this week to, great idea!

I agree.  I'm a sucker for kick-ass logos.  Maybe a listener/poster contest?  Everyone who is willing or able to create a logo submits one?  I'd also like to see a custom banner that I can embed on other websites (MySpace, etc) that links to the forum or the podcast. 

*Edit* Looks like Jack's already submitted logos for our approval.  The man moves fast!

Grrr...ImageShack is having issues and is not responding today.  Not sure when it'll be back.  When it is, I'll re-post it to get the unread flag to show.  =-]

Will do.  Image Shack is tanking BIG time.  I keep trying to get it loaded up so I can save it off here at work and it stops mid-download.  I already pulled my spinning Arabic text...lol

As soon as I can get it, I'll send it.

This came from the logo discussion, and I thought I'd bring it up here.  What about the ant in some sort of logo/icon/mascot?  Maybe an ant with a BOB?  It was mentioned on the logo thread, and I think it's a great idea.  Anyone who's listened to the podcasts would get it, and it would be a good conversation starter for the philosophy of preparedness.  I'd submit something, but my artistic skills are nil.  Just a thought.

You could also use the new Logo for the Podcast. I use iTunes to download and listen on my iPod Touch,
it would be nice to see, lets say logo F on it, then that default blank screen.
If someone said this already, sry, still on my first cup of coffee this morning.

Good idea!  If you hit the center button twice on songs, it shows the cover art.  I think the same thing applies to the podcasts.

K, it's been a while since I had the video iPod, I can't remember the display. I had the 1st gen touch,
I just got the 2nd gen touch last week, 32gb,, very happy with it.
This Week In Tech is one of the many other Podcasts I listen to. Good thing my work has me on the
road for many hours, only way I can listen to all of them.
