toppling a tshirt tyranny and taking a trip to california

(sorry for the alliteration, it's a shame we're not flying to Texas or Tulsa)

It's been a while, I know, but even I couldn't find anything to blog about. That's not to say that I've found something worth writing about (or more importantly, written something worth reading), but it's about time I updated this thing.

First, it's worth mentioning that we've broken the oppressive chains of CafePress by printing our own reddit Tshirts. After spending way too much time folding them all (I still can't do this) it seemed appropriate to capture the image for posterity, so that my progeny could see how their father spent his "startup days."

If you'd like to take one (or twenty) of these off our hands, look no further. We also couldn't afford real models... so we had to improvise.

Second, (if my the shirts were "worth mentioning," than I suppose this would be, too) it looks like we're heading out to Startup School 2006 at Stanford (although Aaron was only there for a year, he's assured us that he can still get around campus). If you missed the first one, you can find most of the presentations online, but the mp3 of Steve Wozniak doesn't really do him justice. Apparently, there's a petition to get him to speak this time around, but there are plenty of great speakers already on the official list.

So if you're in the area (or are making the trip -- yes, it's that worth it, especially considering it's free), just fill out this form.

We'd been using CafePress for a while (the store is still up), which worked fine early on because we didn't have to worry about running it. Of course, we also didn't gain a lot from it -- so when we thought the time was right, we placed an order for a bunch of t-shirts for us to sell, packages, and ship ourselves.

It's been a great success so far, we couldn't be more pleased.
