Would someone with an art gene try to draw a jeans pocket with upper half of something resembling an e-book reader (e.g. like Sony) - the lower half being inside the pocket? I would try to draw it myself, but then I would need even more text to explain what it actually is. No drawing talent. Zilch. )

Keep in mind that I have exactly zero artistic talent, but here's a quick Photoshop mock-up of what I was talking about.

I like the idea with the binary bubble from jasonkchapman, maybe i will snitch it for another try.

Mhm I don't know if the arrows add to much detail?

I like it - what about removing the text from the middle and adding it to the right hand side or just removing the text altogether? Just a thought

Not bad, what if you reverse it. fill the book with small 1 and 0's and where you have the magnifying glass, you see text.

First I thought of a crypto code; but then I understood the meaning of turning binary data into text. Cool idea!

The hat tip goes to DeGodefroi. I was riffing on the idea of turning the text/bits thing the other way around.

Please do. I'm thinking of this as a visual brainstorming session.

I like the "circuit trace" look on yours. Combining that with the text/bits bubble might look really good.

I like both.
Although if it were possible to combine a book from the first logo with binaries from the second logo where you can see letters through mag. glass...it would be even coller

Some interesting ideas are coming out. This one, for example, has a nice clean look and sort of reminds me of the "Intel Inside" idea except it's a book that's "digital inside". The other variations also have brought out some new angles to think about. Keep 'em coming!

Maybe we could make a wikipage for the pictures? That would make comparison and discussion of seperate ideas easier, I think.
