Topic Maps Logo?

While writing about Drake, I was struck by the attractiveness of the project logo:

Drake logo

So I decided to look at some other projects logos, just to get some ideas on what other projects were doing as far as logos:

Hadoop logo

Mahout logo

Chukwa logo

But the most famous project at Apache has the simplest logo of all:

HTTPD logo

To be truthful, when someone says web server, I automatically think of the Apache server. Others exist and new ones are invented, but Apache server is nearly synonymous with web server.

Perhaps the lesson is the logo did not make it so.

Has anyone written a history of the Apache web server?

A cross between a social history and a technical one, that illustrates how the project responded to user demands and and requirements. That could make a very nice blueprint for other projects to follow.
