Whether you’ve been around Mozilla for 10 years or 10 minutes, it’s a well-known fact that t-shirts are a big deal here. We all feel passionate about our gear, and every Mozillian has at least a few favorite shirts piled up in a drawer somewhere. (Side note: this is a good article about why t-shirts matter at tech companies.)
I’ve been fortunate enough to have been involved with dozens of different t-shirt projects during my time at Mozilla, and for awhile was very diligently chronicling all the shirts I worked on as well as ones created before I came on board. However, over time other priorities got in the way and eventually I stopped my archiving entirely (the link earlier in this paragraph covers through the fall of 2008).
But, a recent conversation with Greg Jost and this blog post by Wil Clouser have convinced me it’s time to bring the t-shirt archive back. I need your help though.
So, let’s create a new archive of all the Mozilla shirts that are out there. Here’s what to do:
1. Visit the brand new Flickr pool and see if you have any Mozilla-related shirts not pictured.
2. If you do, take a picture of the shirt (can be of you wearing it or of just the shirt…as long as the design is clearly visible) and add it to the pool. If you remember any details about when/where/how you got it, please add those as well.
3. Share this post with your fellow Mozillians so we can get their shirts as well.
I’ll share updates as the pictures come in. Can’t wait to see what you have to share!
