The Order of The Lambda Calculus

Talking about Linux conjures up images of penguins and BSD, images of red demons with pointy tails. These symbols have gained universal acceptance because of their uniqueness and the fact that they represent a community brought together by a common credo.

The lisp community always had its ubiquitious lambda, but somehow a simple lambda doesn’t convey the full strength of the community as tux or the deamon (red guy with pointy tail) does. So here is my feeble attempt to make a logo for the lisp community.

Btw, If you notice that there is an inscription saying “The Order of The Lambda Calculus”, well its not some weird secret soceity (no ‘eyes wide shut’ stuff going on). Its just about the fact that anyone who is interested in LISP (and by lisp, I mean all dialects of it too ) or is a LISP user or Just thinks LISP is cool can become a member of it , by simply putting the logo on your homepage / weblog / T-shirts / tatoo’s etc..

Also, If you do so, don’t hesitate to send me a mail so I can keep an unofficial list. my mail id is

Signing off with lots of community spirit,
Vishnu Vyas.
