If submitted on Friday, you'd be in the fog. It's a shame the idea didn't come to you until late...

Actually, it began with switches I believe. Still, great colors, reminds me of my old college mainframe interface, GMV.

You can ride with me, or you can find your own path. Don't stab me in the back after I've cleared the way.

Not sure. I googled "greater than AND underscore AND shirt", but did not come up with anything...
Maybe I'm not doing it right.

p.s. This shirt would be boss if it had a C on it. Oh yeah, no text this week.

It is a shame, indeed. In fact I didn't get around to looking at this weeks derby until Monday. Completely slipped my mind.

Ah yes, the evolution of the computer from the cathode ray tube to BJTs and CMOS. Although computers do have more primal beginnings, it's much easier to graphically represent the command line of a computer rather than, say, a switch board. Not to mention the shirt looks so darn cool despite its simplicity.

It's quite possible. It seemed a fairly obvious idea when I thought of it so there might already be something similar.

As a data analyst I demand this shirt!

I love everything about this shirt.
I just can't see wearing it.
Also I dislike the color...
... and the graphic.

I like it, although its a bit too simplistic. Sorry man, but it does not take SUPER CREATIVITY to make this...

It is quite minimalist, yes. But that was just the nature of the idea. What's there is really all that was needed. The viewer is supposed to fill in the rest. Just like we can recognize a drawing of a face with just a few marks, people can recognize via the symbols and composition what it is supposed to represent: a computer waiting to begin. Nothing more is really necessary... except, maybe, making it glow in the dark. :D

I suppose it also depends on your definition of "SUPER CREATIVITY". Is it clever ideas or the ability to produce images?

Just a thought.

I like it, but I hope it is not rejected on text.

sorry, can't resist butting in here. bad or dull ideas drawn really well and look great on a tee are a dime a dozen, just go to walmart and buy one. good ideas drawn poorly never go anywhere because no one would want to wear it. dull ideas that have been done over and over, done well or not, simply are never going to win a competition like this unless there is something in them them that takes the idea to a new place...in other words employ "super creativity". that design doesn't go anywhere interesting and has, quite honestly, been done so many times you can almost hear the audience groan when you see it.
