Need to create a new Brand Identity for an enterprise technology online community. The community is called "CIO Confidential".

This new brand needs to be: Edgy, provocative, bold and disruptive

We are looking to get a set of logos that work in 3 ways:

1. A mark/image + the text CIO Confidential in a long, linear fashion.
2. A mark/image + the text CIO Confidential in a square fashion
3. A stand-alone mark/image that stands for the brand that we can use without the text CIO Confidential.

The CIO Confidential business story: The job and role of a CIO is changing rapidly in line with the ever-evolving business landscape. CIOs are now competing for budget dollars with CMOs – in fact, the IT spend of CMOs is expected to outpace CIOs by 2017 (Source: Gartner and CIO Magazine). And many trends are impacting the role of the CIO – the consumerization of IT, big data, cloud, mobility, etc. We want to provide CIOs and senior IT decision makers with the unfiltered information they need to succeed, and the opportunity to engage with other like-minded executives.

We're different because: We will be providing a frank and honest look at the life and challenges of being a CIO

We want a new brand identity and logo that represent this new future.

Update 26-Aug-13 GMT
The logo should only read "CIO Confidential". And not have the words Brand Identity in it, please.
Update 28-Aug-13 GMT
Can we see some executions that include

1. an electric plug (like on a device) in the logo?
2. "talk bubbles" (like in comic books) in the logo?
3. Computer hardware imagery in the logo?

Update 28-Aug-13 GMT
Would love to see one that uses a network cable connector as the imagery. Category 5 connector/network cable connector.
Update 10-Sep-13 GMT
Need a few days more to get some refinements from finalists.
