What!... Mono is spanish for 'monkey'? ;)  I thought it was short for
'monochrome'.  At least that would explain the colorful website and now
the black and white monkey.  I mean, i'm affraid to stare directly into
the xml button by fear that it might burn my retina. :)

I vote for the black and white monkey.  It's pretty cool!  One thing
though, I think it should have more prominent real estate on the
t-shirt.  Also, I like the idea that it seems to be a bit fatter.  The
other one just looks anorexic to me.

But seriously guys, i've been following the list for a while now and i'm
really impressed with the pace of this project.  I'm looking forward to
learning more about and using mono in the near future.  Keep up the good
work and congratulations on what you've managed to accomplish thus far.

regards,

JP
