Geek T-Shirt Collection #7 – MyBloop.com

There’s only 2 copies of this shirt, I made them on spreadshirt.com, the other one belongs to Fitim the original founder of MyBloop.com. I believe I’m the 3rd or 4th person to join the project, I did so around 2006, and it wasn’t until spring 2008 that we had the current look and feel of the site, along with the current logo which was created by El Blogo, an amazing graphic designer from Venezuela, who also gave birth to the FrostWire logo.

MyBloop.com According to Wikipedia

MyBloop is a file hosting and social networking website, based in New York, USA.

Angel Leon, one of the founders of the service once said:

“Google downloaded the Internet, MyBloop.com uploaded everybody’s hardrive to it“

  1. MyBloop is an unreliable service. They’ve been experiencing a server issue for the past five or six weeks: any files hosted on FS5.mybloop.com are inaccessible — trying to download them simply times out. But you can still download files from any other FS server. Crazy. Oh well. I think these guys must be on the fast track to the deadpool.
