How Hacker Boss started their logo design journey

Company name

Hacker Boss

Overview

Logo needed for my Hacker Boss blog. It's about programming and managing software teams.

It would be great if the logo would reflect both the "hacker/programmer" and "boss/manager" aspects.

The blog is at http://hackerboss.com/. Have a look to get a feel of the site.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Software developers, geeks, hackers, techies.

Project managers, R&D managers, CTOs, entrepreneurs.

Requirements

- The logo must work on a white/light background.
- I like black and white, but feel free to experiment with colors.
- Do not use the "hacker emblem" (the 3x3 grid with 5 dots). Nobody knows what it means.

It would be great if the logo would communicate both the hacker and the boss aspects.

Things meaning "boss" could be
- necktie
- suit
- suitcase
- slides
- graph
- money
- budget

Things meaning hacker could be:
- special characters (like {, \, }, |, ;, *, #) for 'program code'
- cola
- CPU, PCB, electronics
- keyboard, keys
- computer
- cables, connectors

I'm just thinking out loud here, but somehow combining those two might work. Maybe side by side. Maybe a business shirt + tie, unbuttoned to show program code underneath. Perhaps a necktie with a PCB pattern. Feel free to try stuff out, I'll let you know what I think.

A vector image as well as a .JPG would be good. I may need to resize the logo later.
