MindTap Technologies is a managed services provider (definition: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Managed_services#M...). We 1) support the day-to-day information technology needs and (2) provide strategic IT consulting for companies that have under 100 users.

Brief updates

Completed first 'round' of scoring... this is our first cs project, so hope we weren't too negative. Thanks everyone for hard work, we're seeing great designs, still looking for something that says 'bang'.

One thought, we're using tap to mean a device by which flows can be controlled. (synonyms: faucet, spigot, plug). our own brainstorming sessions were trying to figure out how to represent tapped minds without it being too busy or childish looking. we see some submissions working for this and look forward to more or ideas that build on the idea of our knowledge at work

Thanks again for your patience as we try to describe something we're figuring out along the way!
