The circle is actually a globe and the blue lines are meant to be wires wrapped around the world. This is to show the global reach of the company.



Founder Michael Dell’s philosophy was to ‘turn the world on its ear’. This has ben symbolized through the ‘E’ that is turned on its side. Some say it also represents a floppy disk.

The Wikipedia glove is made up of puzzle pieces, but you will notice that some are missing and the puzzle is incomplete. This is to symbolize that Wikipedia is constantly evolving as the world and its news continues to expand.
