How MDN started their logo design journey

Summary

Design a logo for a new company specializing in customized Agile Ruby on Rails development of online applications.

Company name

Cognitation

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

We need a logo for our company.  Here's a description of what we do and why we're good at it:

Cognitation provides agile Ruby on Rails development services and web/technology strategy consulting.  Our unique approach to projects keeps you, the client, involved at every step of the way and ensures an end product that is effective, efficient, and affordable.

Our founder and principal brings over 15 years of experience in software and technologydevelopment to each and every project. Under his leadership, we focuson understanding your business and creating applications specificallydesigned to meet your unique challenges. Our experience in an array oftechnologies such as Ruby on Rails, CakePHP, PHP, rich Ajax user interfaces and other advanced model view controller frameworks guarantees a well rounded approach to your project.
Asa client, you will get to know Stephen and the rest of our incredibleteam intimately. Our agile development process means that you areinvolved in every iteration of your new software. Each iteration lastsaround 2 weeks, at the end of which we'll upload completed, bug-freecode for the agreed-upon deliverables. This way, you can see yoursoftware take shape quickly and without any lengthy and expensiveup-front planning period. 10-15 minutes of your involvement each dayensures that your project stays on track and on time.
At Cognitation, we believe in teamwork and open communication.  We work equally well as a one-stop source for your particular technical needs or as part of a focused, multi-disciplinary team.

So, we need a logo that is:  web 2.0 friendly, but also looks good in print; modern, but sophisticated; "techy" without being too geeky or corny.  One possible idea is to show the letter "o" in the word Cognitation as a gear (since a "cog" is actually the teeth on the gear), but we are definitely open to seeing different option.

- no tagline at the present, but leaving space for one in the design would be great (i.e. maybe show it with and without one, using lorem ipsum)

Don't want

- Something difficult to read
- anything whacky or funny
