You can do a fairly good trace with Inkscape.

I'm "attaching" my quick effort but you could easily improve on it if you spent a little time on it. I've left the text in as part of the trace, but you'd probably get a better effect if you just traced the outside of the bubble, filled it in and put "real" text over it.

Just a tip. When working with vector images it is best to have as few nodes as possible. –  Octavian Damiean Feb 22 '12 at 12:38

I've made a proper SVG version of the logo. It is in 512x512.

The logo is still intellectual property of Stack Exchange inc.
