Thanks for the link, I quite like this post on the modifying of fonts for logo purposes. For my own site I did quite the similar, even though it wasn't a conscious decision. I chose Computer Modern Unicode as a font, the font used in programs like LaTeX for scientific (specifically math and physics) writing. I quite like the formal and readability of it, and it has a professional look without being devoid of character. After modifying the outlines, I gave the v a three-dimensional effect that's wrong on purpose: the right part should be behind the left, but it's the other way around at the base. I found it fitting, putting that effect in the logo. A changing perspective, so to speak.
