New Ruby Culture T-Shirts!

Ruby culture t-shirts are available for purchase right now!

http://www.spreadshirt.com/shop.php?sid=36444

== DESCRIPTION

Inspired by has_and_belongs_to_none, I decided to make a few shirts
that I thought would be cool to have. I based a lot of the designs on
various things I’ve heard that struck me as cool. I’m sure I’m missing
lots of great stuff, but this is what a quiet afternoon will afford
me.

All prices are as low as possible: I do not make a profit on any of
these. If there is enough positive feedback, I’d be happy to change $1
more on each and donate that to RubyCentral (or retire early… hah).
Some shirts cost more because there is more to it: more lines of text,
more graphics, therefore making it more expensive to produce. Shirts
will cost anywhere from $12 to $22.

== FEATURES

Here are a few notable designs:

  • I Ruby (et al)
  • A few region-based designs (“Atlanta Rubyist”, etc)
  • Quotes (from _Why The Lucky Stiff, etc)
  • A few “Pragmatic” shirts
  • Code snippets
  • Random yummyness!
  • Some stupid stuff too!
  • And something for Haskell fans!

My favorite so far is the collect one:

…but it appears to have a missing left square bracket.

They look really cool, lol. Nice one.

Fixed the elusive [ issue.

Also, the pandas are cool and it’s the best thing I could come up
with! :slight_smile: That’s all I’ve got, unless you have any other suggestions
for Japanese animals? :smiley:

Consider adding the extra dollar or so and using it to support a Ruby
activity.

The Ruby shirts, coffee mugs, mouse pads, etc. available at
www.rubystuff.com have a mid-range markup that is used to help pay
server costs for ruby-doc.org.

Shirts are now around $15 and go up to as high as $22, but the average
is roughly $18 to $20.

I’m intregued - have you actually made all of these, or are the images
synthetic, until someone orders one? :slight_smile:

On that note, an Origami crane (to me) looks distinctly Japanese, and
might
look pretty cool if you could get a good image.

Nah, I think a raccoon dog would be more appropriate.

. . . or maybe a daikon. That’d be kinda neat.

I really think you need to drop it. Do you have any idea how
offensive it is for Japanese people to be considered ‘Chinese’, or
vice versa?

Making a suggestion that Japanese culture, nature, indeed anything,
is “just like the Chinese” is likely to cause extreme offence in some
quarters.

It would be like suggesting the Irish were “just like the English”.
Heck, China and Japan only restored official diplomatic relationships
after WW2 in 1972.

I’d say until you come up with something better, remove it.

I cannot remember any animal. But what about a sakura tree? :wink:

Thanks

Some more shirts out of the past RailsConf with Ruby and Rails
slogans/idioms:

Also they state: “A third of the profits will be donated to RubyCentral”

In regards to the panda: as you can imagine, it was never my intent to
cause offense. You’re right, pandas come from China, and it just
doesn’t make sense. I still like the design though. :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve taken it off and replaced it with these two designs:

http://www.spreadshirt.com/shop.php?op=article&article_id=1407422#top
http://www.spreadshirt.com/shop.php?op=article&article_id=1407388#top

The first is my favorite. It took some searching, but I actually found
the outline of the country. So, how about that for correct? :slight_smile:

I’d wear a shirt with a big daikon on it. I love daikon :slight_smile:

Of course - nobody means to cause offence, never does - I just
thought I’d best let you know of your social faux pas before the
Rubyists in .jp came around and smashed up the front of your web
store. :slight_smile:

How about have the same panda but another slogan? “Ruby is so easy,
even Pandas can do it” which has a sort of double entendre element to
it…

Is that a pigeon? WTF is a pigeon doing there? :slight_smile:

I snapped a shot with my digital camera’s “Digital Macro” mode (large
image):

http://www.grayproductions.net/ruby/images/ruby_crane.jpg

The question is, could we Photoshop that down to one color and still
have it look decent?

Unfortunately, I’m pretty limited by the graphics that are already
available. Plus, I’m not so hot with the Illustrator, so I probably
wouldn’t produce anything worthwhile!

:slight_smile:

But, if you design a vector Daikon for a shirt (with 1 color), then let
me know!

FYI, there are some family crests featuring origami cranes.
