I want an iconic/symbolic logo that ideally provides room to play with as a repeating element or theme throughout the website (not a neccessity). I'd not reject a great combination mark either.
While I'd prefer designs that can stand on their own, I'd also like to see a version of your logo with the letters BBQ and possibly the claim "Information finds you".
You'll have to demonstrate that your idea, basic logo and colorscheme are strong and versatile enough to serve as the basis of a brand, a website, and to later be repurposed for iphone app logos, favicons, print, tshirts, ...
I don't need all of that done right now, mind you. Initially I'll just want to take the logo and put it on a website, and then start to develop a website design from there. Please mention if you will be able to help with the website design as well! (JFYI: the website with the most similar UI is probably twitter)
Think about a design that isn't heavy nor generic. Play with the filter and the relief people will feel when they stop drowning in information. Don't get too hung up on the name. This isn't about the name, this is about emotion. And freedom. And making us happier.
Don't try to recycle something that doesn't fit. I'm not interested in something generic. I can increase the prize money if what you're doing is a lot of work, but don't give me junk.
