For people who don't understand making money:

If it sells out, it means that lots of people probably still want it and that they will very likely still buy it later. By having it sell out, Woot limits the amount of shirts that can be sold for 10 bucks when the shirt is really popular, so that they can sell more of the same shirt for 15 later. Chances are, enough people will still buy it so that you make more money even when the price is raised. Even if less shirts are sold at 15 than would have sold after "sold out" at 10, it will probably still be worth it in total revenue.

For shirts that aren't popular enough to sell out, having it a lower price for one day increases the amount of people who buy it by giving an incentive to those who may want it at some point to go ahead and buy it immediately. If I am not sure if I want a shirt, but I know I may regret not getting it, I may buy it because I'd rather pay 10 than 15.

That said, I really don't like this shirt and I'm surprised it sold out.

I'd rather have this version on a shirt/bumper sticker.



I found it on this blog http://www.everydaynodaysoff.com/2010/04/15/coexist-in-firearm-manufacturer-logos/

That said, there's no real merit to an over-used and ergo uncreative bumpersticker. This is an over-utilized theme that has apparently already been done to this theme. Which means it should probably be reprinted some time next year like Evil-O-Meter.



Obvious troll is obvious.

No BSDs represented. Still, i'm tempted.

To the folks who can't identify all of them: read the copy! It usually explains the shirt (though, occasionally, the explanation needs explanation).

This is a jolly-late comment, I know, but I'm surprised that the Apple logo is on this. Generally, whenever someone makes a parody of or uses the actual Apple logo in the derbies, the entry is rejectionated due to how protective Apple is of their trademark. Interesting that this daily used it.

Got my tracking notice on 12/6 However, FedEx gives me a nice "Not Found" every time I check on the status. It will most likely end up in my mailbox before the tracking issue is resolved. After 90+ Woot!s, I've learned to not panic and enjoy the waiting game.

I love the design, but doesn't this violate some shirt.woot rules? Let alone trademark? I'm only asking because I've had many a shirt shot down because of the ole Apple logo.

Well, it's parody, and I'm sure that woot's lawyers cleared it before running it. They a business. They smart!

It's important to note that this is a daily shirt, not a derby shirt. The rules for derbies and the rules for dailies are completely different. Shirt.woot staff can choose to run whatever they want for a daily, no rules, because they are curating the art on their own. Derbies have rules that must be followed because it is a public competition. So what must be followed in a derby has nothing to do with what shirt.woot staff pick for dailies.

I thought this site only attracted computer nerds, but after reading the comments here most of you all think you're nerds, but only just use a computer and a few popular programs. Using apple, windows, facebook, twitter, firefox, and google chrome extremely often doesn't make you a computer nerd. Guess I was wrong about the woot.com crowd and their computer savviness.

I was hoping to see more people recognize these symbols off the bat.

Props to woot writers for the related poem; I'll say entertaining.

I'm a little disappointed, too, at how non-positive the feedback in this thread has been. I'm a computer programmer and a huge T-shirt enthusiast, and the first thing I thought when I saw the design was "BRILLIANT", and then "WANT".

I would have liked to see the Linux penguin as the I, but I still think it's a great shirt, better than the other techie Coexist logos.

Also, I didn't realize the write-up was a poem until someone pointed it out. Very well written!
