I’m just going to come right out and say this up front — because I’m sure one of you lot will leave something in the comments if I don’t — this shirt has a bit of printing on the back. And if that garners a “no sale” in your book, no skin off my back. I mean, I’m not the one selling the shirt, am I?

Normally I’m a pretty big snob about that sort of thing too, but I really like A List Apart, so I’m going to let this one slide. I’ve been letting a lot of stuff slide lately, haven’t I? Does this mean that I’m beginning to get a bit soft in my old age? Am I going to start running retarded shirts from utterly mediocre CafePress shops now?

Fuck no. Not today. Not ever. Thank you kindly for your concern, tho.

All y’all in the geek circles will hopefully agree that this one up to the standards I’ve previously held myself to before. Superimposing Web 2.0 with snake oil imagery is a clever bit of commentary. Of course it might have to be explained to someone like your granny, but how many shirts do you honestly own that she doesn’t get anyhow?

Don’t get me wrong. I love AJAX as much as the next person — but I don’t believe that it is this be-all and end-all answer for what the internet can be. It honestly seems like loads of folks are playing it off to be that. And after pawing over TechCrunch for an afternoon, I’m happy to see a shirt that flies directly in the face of that concept. Well done, ALA!
