BarCampMilwaukee4 Shirt Concepts

Our old E-Pal HeyGabe got appointed the T-shirt Czar, and with that he put out the call for t-shirt designs, and I have heeded the call, and the results are below.

BarCampMilwaukee4 Shirt Concept #1

This is a number 4 blasting off into space by the power of BarCamp!

BarCampMilwaukee4 Shirt Concept #2

This is a robot based on an original drawing by Madeline Prodoehl. People seem to like robots.

Keep in mind, HeyGabe is the T-shirt Czar, which, I believe, means that he has the power to choose what shirt design is selected. I mean, maybe you can influence him, but don’t quote me on that.

(Thanks to Shannon Palmer for providing a Creative Commons licensed t-shirt template for use in these mock-ups.)




BarCampMilwaukee4 is happening!

Mark your calendars… October 3/4, 2009 at the Chase Commerce Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Venue sponsor Bucketworks has worked with Mike Doro to secure us space for the event.

The web site will be up soon at, thanks to Jeramey. (And a special thanks to Distance Software for hosting the web site.)

Our E-Pal Gabe from Web414 is working on the t-shirts (don’t worry, not the design, just the logistics!)

Ashe and I are getting some sponsors… and doing that general “organizing” thing.

Sponsors? So far we’ve got Microsoft, Hentzenwerke Publishing,, and Fresh Coast Ventures offering to help out. (And yes, we could use a few more!)

And you? Well, we hope you’ll be there to make it happen with us.
