T-Shirt & Poster Concepts
At the risk of starting a flame war, I wanted to make a modest proposal
regarding future t-shirt/poster designs.
Seeing as how the newest t-shirt/poster designs, along with the CD artwork,
suggest that making fun of bad policy decisions is a good idea, I suggest
that we broaden our scope a bit. After all, why limit our satire to a bad
Department of Defense decision when we've got the USPTO & EU Patents, SCO,
the [RI|MP]AA, stupid MS worm writers, etc. to go after?
I bought the "Make Crypto Not Munitions" shirt because it made an
intelligent statement against bad policy/thought. I intend to get the latest
shirt for the same reason. More importantly, I have a feeling I'm not the
only member of the community that likes to make a statement with what they
wear, meaning that shirts & posters of this ilk might sell quite well.
I'm certainly well-aware that those who already do the work for these
wonderful items are quite busy folks, and have ideas of their own; thus, I
don't intent for this to come across as a demand, just a simple suggestion.
Hopefully this bit of input, and input from others, can lead to designs
large portions of the community enjoy (and subsequently purchase :-).
To that end, I'm going to leave off with a couple of possibilities for
Front Tagline: "OpenBSD: Free of IP Problems Since 1993" (I know the
project's only been around since 1995, but I figure the refernce to ATT v.
UC Regents justifies this)
Back Artwork: Puffy in a suit w/his lawyer nearby, doing something to show
they're both blowing off SCO and/or any other IP lawsuits
Front Tagline: "Make Sure Not to Give Out 'Your Details'"
Back Artwork: Puffy destroying a bunch of earthworm-looking creatures whose
bodies contain phrases such as 'Wicked Screensaver' or even 'I Love You'
Oh yeah, and go pre-order your CD like I've already done!
