What are some clever tech-related sponsorship levels?

Help me think of some clever sponsorship levels for our upcoming tech conference.

I am on the planning committee for a fairly small (150ish attendees) national conference. The organization that puts on the conference is a group of Catholic IT professionals. This year, we're implementing sponsorship levels, like "Platinum", "Gold", and "Silver". But those are kind of boring.

Help us think of some technology-themed levels we can use.

We will have three levels of sponsorship, and the titles need to be obviously "good", "better", and "best".

venial, cardinal and mortal?
Parish, Bishopric, Archdiocese?

Sorry, the catholic angle is far more lulzy than the tech.

T-1, T-3, OC-3, OC-12, OC-48, OC-192 -- for the non-techies, these are the most common sizes of internet "pipes". A T-1 transmits 1.544 megabits per second, a T-3 is 43.232 megabits/second, an OC-3 is 155 megabits per second, and so on. As an ex-techie myself, I'd love to strut around saying "Yeah, well I'm an OC-3".

The nine orders of angels:
Angels, Archangels, Virtues, Powers, Principalities, Dominations, Throne, Cherubim and Seraphim.

Maybe use the first and last two?

I think we're probably going to go with the mega/giga/tera suggestion. Not as exciting as I'd hoped, but easily understood, at least.
