Okay. So there's been this announcement. My employer, Dallas science center, has joined forces with our next-door neighbors, the natural history museum, to form a new organization, the Dallas Museum of Nature and Science. I think it's an awesome opportunity for both -- charitable organizations have had to choose between us for their donations, our resources when pooled will be greater than the sum of their parts, and our missions are, like, identical.

This means great things for my future, and my science center's future, and the future of Dallas.

There will be a "unification committee" made up of members of both boards which will give us recommendations after about 90 days. I am bursting, I'm so giddy about this.

Here's an article from our local paper, if you're into that kind of thing.

This article in the Dallas Business Journal goes into a little more depth, including the projected 10% layoff (of which I'm not afraid) and the designer of the downtown facility...

Frank "Makes-Metal-Look-Like-Molten-Joy" Gehry! Yeah, I know. I'm gonna, like, die!

So. The only thing I'm kind of skittish about? The logo:

It looks kind of like an ovum. But maybe that's just me (and the number of times I watched Look Who's Talking when I was a kid).

This article discusses it as a "cave ring." I really wish they'd gone with some "particle fields," myself. Or maybe "prism"s. Yum.

The Logo's not so bad. I mean, look at mine:

Woah! When I did the google image search for "Great Lakes Science Center" I found this image of me from.... three or four years ago... Cute! We're doing the "Molecular Macarena" and are demonstrating the liquid phase.

I like you guys' logo -- it's simple, sweeping, and iconic.

I guess our new one is, also... But it goes a little to far into the "projective test" arena.


The new logo reminds me of The Ring... sadly. However, it is what's behind the logo that has me excited. Sounds great! Very good news indeed. :D
