Etherealmind blogger Greg Ferro gives his take on the new proposed CCIE designs. Greg is long on wit but short on patience. He decimates one of the two proposed designs with a single image. Surf on over and you’ll see exactly what I mean. 🙂
He also makes a great case for maintaining the current CCIE logo even if the CCNx logos are changed. The CCIE is a completely different beast from the CCNx track. The CCIE is not really a step up from the CCNP like the CCNA is from the CCENT or the CCNP is from the CCNA – it’s a completely different certification with a unique lab requirement, unique written component, and no pre-requirements (unlike the CCNP). A completely different logo for the CCIE is consistent with the spirit and application of the CCIE.
