How can we improve the new FCC.gov?

FCC seal on new site has error!

The seal at the lower left corner was a wiring error that stubbornly persists and should be a major embarrassment to an "expert agency" in wireless technology.

The seal shown is the same as this: http://history.nasa.gov/presrep98/fccLogo.gif

Here is the previous longstanding version:

Note the "wiring" different with the horizontal wires which is nonsensical but clearly visible. I assume it comes from an artist making an error and no one reviewing it.

The FCC seal is derived from the FRC seal of the late 1920s:

The FCC seal is basically the horizontal shortwave antenna from the FRC seal with telephone lines superimposed showing the addition of Title II telephone and telegraph regulation to the FRC's Title III-like jurisdiction.

Especially in the size of the seal in the Commission meeting room it really looks ridiculous to anyone with any technical background. While it would cost money to fix the one in the meeting room, a little Photoshop work could fix the electronic one on the website and stop propagating this foolishness.
