During the last couple of days, particularly at next08, I’ve had a few very funny discussions about the nature of our jobs, and how you can’t explain any of our internet-related jobs to our parents or non-web friends. (Yes, there are some of those out there!)
As M.T. pointed out, one way to go is to simply state the obvious: I work for the Internets.
My favorite is the slightly more subtle version, black on black. So if you’re hard core geeky, go for this special version “I work for teh Internets”.
There are some more flavors (including a girls version) in the shirt shop. (This is the first time I’m trying to print through Spreadshirt, so please bear with me if the implementation isn’t perfect. Usually, my keingeschenk.de friends and I print our shirts in larger volumes in a Berlin/Kreuzberg print store and distribute them through Shopwindoz. Maybe we’ll do that with this shirt, too, but for the time being, this is it.)
The shirts are all American Apparell. They’re printed on demand, so I haven’t had a chance to see one myself. I just ordered one, will let you know how it turned out. Oh, don’t be surprised about the odd price – it’s set so that shipping costs by Spreadshirt are at a minimum.
Update: The shirt arrived, and in it’s black-on-black print it looks pretty kick ass.
