A Joost beta tester T-Shirt.
Joost is a system for distributing recorded TV shows and other forms of video over the Web using peer-to-peer TV technology, created by Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis (founders of Skype and Kazaa).
Joost began development in 2006. Working under the code name “The Venice Project”, Zennström and Friis assembled teams of some 150 software developers in about six cities around the world, including New York, London, Leiden and Toulouse. According to Zennström at a 25 July 2007 press conference about Skype held in Tallinn, Estonia, Joost had signed up more than a million beta testers, and its launch was scheduled for the end of 2007.
The teams are currently in negotiations with FOX networks. It has signed up with Warner Music, Indianapolis Motor Speedway Productions (Indianapolis 500, IndyCar Series) and production company Endemol for the beta. In February 2007, Viacom entered into a deal with the company to distribute content from its media properties, including MTV Networks, BET and film studio Paramount Pictures.

This is the first of a series of picture posts I intend to share with you so you can take a look at the collection of Geek T-Shirts I’ve managed to amass during the last 5 years.
If you are an internet or technology company, feel welcome to send me a t-shirt, If I haven’t done a review of your company/product, I’ll do a review for you in return and I’ll take a picture of myself wearing it.
The Ubuntu Upgrade T-Shirt
Front – “sudo apt-get upgrade”
Back – Ubuntu logo
This T-shirt I made as an homage to Ubuntu and the mantra of easy updates, as well as a mantra of always keeping yourself up to date in life with whatever you do.
Nowadays updating Ubuntu is even easier, but some people like me still might do it old style, updating manually the /etc/apt/sources.list file, and running sudo apt-get update and then sudo apt-get upgrade dist, the t-shirt reads sudo apt-get upgrade which will basically upgrade those packages on your machine that need to do so.
The T-shirt was made at my favorite T-shirt-making website, (here goes the free ad) SpreadShirt.com
Photographed by Paulina Leon at 5 Points in Long Island City, NY.
