    Department of Innovation Logo Fail

    Department of Innovation Logo Fail

    Michelle Malkin reports:

    Inspired by President Obama’s “Sputnik moment” speech back in January, the government-sponsored Smithsonian Institute has launched a new blog called“Department of Innovation”

    Sharp-eyed reader Rob M. certainly found the “Department of Innovation”s logo entertaining. You will, too.

    Take a closer look:

    As Rob wrote me this morning: “Check out the logo. 3 interlocking gears arranged in this fashion will not move in any direction. They are essentially locked in place. Which when you think about it, is a perfect analogy of today’s government!”

    to the full extent allowed by law.


    Go to the website and it’s been changed. Sheesh.

    Ed. note — Thank you to everyone for your comments about our logo. We have since shifted the gears and switched in a new logo.

    Big picture about that “innovation” logo: Gears? Really? For the 21st c.?

    It looks like an iconic throwback image in support of Soviet prole-industrialism.

    we already have a patent office. this disrespects us.
