I am Werner Vogels, a long time technologist and internet citizen. For the past 5 years I have been CTO at Amazon.com. The information on my Wikipedia page is relatively accurate: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Werner_Vogels but there are probably other pages out with more information.
In terms of personality I am probably best described as a fun-loving, hard core technologist who travels the world promoting cloud computing.
The new logo does not necessarily need to be like this, but something that just has the W in there would certainly be OK. If it has the rounded, glossy feeling of a button, like the current logo, that would be prefered.
But I am open for more creative solutions as well.
