Geek T-Shirt Collection #15 – FrostWire Beach Fest 2007

This one was made by a founding member of the FrostWire project, there’s only a handful of these out there in the world, I’m lucky to have it, I think it looks even cooler than the official t-shirt, almost designer made.

Geek T-Shirt Collection #14 – FrostWire

This is the official FrostWire T-Shirt. I contribute to this open source project to keep my java skills up to date. We had a lot of these t-shirt printed to gather donations for the project. Thanks to the people that support us there’s only a few left (only M size) so Get your T-Shirt and support FrostWire.

What is FrostWire (According to Wikipedia)
FrostWire is a peer-to-peer file sharing program for the Gnutella and BitTorrent protocols. FrostWire is written in Java, and is a fork of LimeWire, another popular Gnutella client. Released under the GNU General Public License, FrostWire is free software.

Geek T-Shirt Collection #9: Joost Doodle

One of the more discreete Joost T-Shirts, featuring the good old Doodle that used to show back in the day of the stand alone Joost client.

About Joost
(From Wikipedia)

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.[2] 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.

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
