This project is a re-brand of the website http://www.apiunittest.com.s3-websi…zonaws.com, see that website for more details.
The old name "API Unit Test" sounds too much like an open source project so we're going to move to the name API Canary which will live at https://www.apicanary.com.
A canary is a bird that was once used in coal mining to alert miners when toxic gases reached dangerous levels. If the canary died the coal miners would know that toxic gas was being released in the mine and they would know to evacuate. The production tests that our users upload to our site are also used to detect when there is an issue in their production APIs hence the name "API Canary"

NOTE: Please make sure your bird drawing does not resemble the twitter logo.
Here are some examples of logos I like...

Note: The logo will need to be able to work on white, colored or transparent backgrounds. It should also have a component of it that would work as an icon when used as an iphone app icon, browser favicon, twitter image, etc. Here's an example:
