I'm coming into this discussion a bit late, but I just wanted to remark
that I'm not a fan of the pastels in these logos. The light blue is
barely visible on my monitor here. While that might be due to poor
monitor calibration on my part, I'm certainly not the only person in the
world with a badly-calibrated monitor.

I like the shape of your variation, though. The arrows seem a little
more compact and even and I wasn't really a fan of having the logo be
the Y in the name.
