As for Jason, he introduced himself via a post in the ECA Forums:

I will be working closely with all of the different departments that make up the ECA to ensure that their hard work is getting the attention that it deserves. That includes increasing the awareness amongst you, the ECA members, in addition to broadening our message to the consumers and the media. In the coming months, we will be launching the first of our monthly newsletters, which will allow us to share the latest and greatest happenings with our members...

Forgive me, Shadow. It completely slipped my mind that the books without the pretty pictures in them confuse you. Gimme just a second and I'll go search for a picture of Captain Kirk putting his hand to his face and then, once I find it, I'll post it. That way, you can follow along just fine. 

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

Be nice. I only noticed after it was pointed out myself.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

You have no idea how hard I'm trying to be nice. And, if I say so myself, I'm doing a pretty good job. At least I scratched the first response which came to mind.  Gimme some credit.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

Hey, Jason, gonna re-vamp the ECA's logo? Can't nobody but those already indoctrinated in the way of the secret handshake figure out what that thing symbolizes.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

He's talking about this:

Is it immediately apparent to you that the logo is an "E", "C", and "a"?

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

Think back to the very first time you saw it, Andrew. Honestly, was it immediately apparent to you back then?  

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

No, it wasn't and that was my point.  I don't think it's a bad logo but I feel it's a bit too clever for its own good.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

It'd be less confusing, I think, if the "a" was an "A." And if the "E" wasn't so often rendered in white. Against a white backgound, it ends up looking like two legs.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

Welcome abord Mr. Anderson, im sure you'll be a great addition to the ECA.
