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.

And I’d like to use the occasion to let you know that the work of winter has resulted in a new version of FrostWire 4.18.0, make sure you download it from the official website only.

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 #5 – Last.fm

This T-shirt I got thanks to my wife, it was sitting at their office for some reasons I should probably not disclose.

The thing is that I’ve been a fan of last.fm for a very long time (my account says it has 5800 plays since 2005) and I wear this t-shirt with a lot of pride.

I actually had the chance to meet Michael Breidenbruecker one of the founders of Last.fm in 2006 during the Plone code-sprint in Austria. Michael and his team (some of which I also met during that sprint) are now working on RJDJ, a very interesting music application for the iPhone.

About Last.fm
From Wikipedia:

Last.fm is a UK-based Internet radio and music community website, founded in 2002. It claims over 21 million active users based in more than 200 countries. On 30 May 2007, CBS Interactive acquired Last.fm for £140m ($280m USD).

Using a music recommendation system called “Audioscrobbler”, Last.fm builds a detailed profile of each user’s musical taste by recording details of all the songs the user listens to, either on the streamed radio stations or on the user’s computer or some portable music devices. This information is transferred to Last.fm’s database (“scrobbled”) via a plugin installed into the user’s music player. The profile data is then displayed on the user’s profile page. The site offers numerous social networking features and can recommend and play artists similar to the user’s favourites.

Users can create custom radio stations and playlists from any of the audio tracks in Last.fm’s music library, and are able to listen to some individual tracks on demand, or download tracks if the rights holder has previously authorised it. Registration is required to acquire a profile but is not necessary to view any part of the site or to listen to radio stations.
