We wanted BIND 10 to have a lovable public face. Someone we can put on the website and give seasonal hats. You know. So, being of an open source frame of mind, we went to you, our community, for suggestions. We got many submissions, from squid to ninja, and our BIND 10 Mascot Selection Committee (made up of BIND 10 sponsors and ISC staff) reviewed them and then presented several for a public vote. The winner was clear... and after some time being "groomed" by our team, we would like to introduce... Bundy the BIND 10 Parrot.
Bundy was created by Stefan Kohlase, a designer and DNS enthusiast from Germany. You can see his original, winning idea here. Thank you to Stefan for his work on Bundy!
