Here’s the link to the wallpaper image for “Tweet Gun”. Enjoy.
Wednesday’s shirt wallpaper has been posted. But I think ALL the shirts themselves are now gone.
Mark Myers (@stickfight) has published another of our LDC shirt designs for #ls12.
There are very few shirts left now: get them while you can!
Mark Myers has uploaded some of this year’s shirt images as downloadable wallpaper. More to follow over the remaining days of #ls12
Also, Mark, Matt and I all still have a few remaining shirts, in various designs, so do find us and ask for one!
So, I have now run out of my sort of #ls12 C.U.L.T. shirts. They’re all gone. You missed your chance. Lotusphere was a complete waste of time for you, because you didn’t manage to get hold of one of these. Seriously, they’re a rare as rocking horse shit, and as precious as a unicorn’s foreskin. Chinese “doctors” would grind them up and use them for medicine if they could get hold of them. You get the picture.
So, here’s the image. That’s right: it’s a truly terrible pun. What did you expect?!

If you don’t get the pun … (a) what is Spock? (b) what are we about to do to him? (c) reverse those two words. Still not? Ask an LDCer.
Anyway … Matt White, Mark Myers and I still have some of the ‘official’ LDC shirts to give away, so hunt us down and demand one. Of course, we may demand in return that you actually wear it for at least half a day while you’re at Lotusphere, but that’s fair enough isn’t it?
I was ambushed🙂 at the Penumbra meeting this morning, and now find myself elected to the Penumbra board for the next couple of years.
Having been a member for the last 3 years, it will be interesting, and I suspect challenging in all sorts of fun ways, to fulfil this role along with my board colleagues Lisa Duke and Jamie Magee.
In the meantime, so far as this week goes, I’m looking forward to the Penumbra dinner tonight, and the (relatively recent tradition) ice-cream Tuesdae (sic) social event. And a very big thank you to Jamie, and to outgoing board members Carl Tyler and Wouter Aukema, for herding the Penumbra cats and organising these events.
Yesterday, I purchased a ‘Camera Connector Kit’ for the iPad, so that while at Lotusphere 2012 I can pull photos off the camera and immediately work with them on the iPad. All good fun.
One of the two connection options one gets with the CCK is a USB port, designed to allow the camera to be plugged in directly with needing to remove the SD card. So I thought to myself … what happens if I plug the USB half of my Plantronics wireless headset into that? Lo and behold, there was rejoicing in heaven and on earth: it works! So now I have a nice way of making comfortable and private Skype calls from the iPad.
All good, given that I shall be laptop-less at #ls12 this year for the first time. I still have to suffer the indignity of using LogMeIn (or similar) to remote onto a real computer in order to be able to use a Notes client. But there are very few (albeit some) reasons why I would need to do that. And my hand luggage will be a LOT lighter than usual🙂
As you are doubtless aware, if you are a Yellow Bubble type reader, there is no C.U.L.T. shirt for #ls12. (If you’re not a Yellow Bubble type reader, you may as well give up now because the rest of this will rightly be meaningless to you.)
For those less into the in-jokes, C.U.L.T. stands (stood) for “Certified Unofficial Lotusphere T-shirt”. They were great fun over the last 10+ years, and Rocky Oliver, Henry Newberry and Andrew Pollack are all owed a debt of gratitude by us members of “the Lotus community” for the volume of effort they put in to make these happen year after year.
Now, it so happens that, late in 2011, after the LDC shirts for Lotusphere 2012 had been selected, I thought of another shirt idea. And, having thought of it, I simply had to have it made, because I (and I may be alone in this of course) happen to find it very amusing. In a gentle nod to the absent C.U.L.T. shirt, this one is the “Certified Unofficial LDC T-shirt”.
There’s no sponsorship – I’ve paid for these myself – which means there really is only a tiny number of them, and they will inevitably therefore be immensely valued as family heirlooms and great cultural treasures by future generations. Possibly.
Stop me at Lotusphere and demand one. Or, of course, demand one of the many other ‘official’ LDC designs that we of LDC will also be carting around with us. They’re all available in sizes up to XXXL (the shirts, not the LDCers).
Yes, it’s that time of year, when my blogging mojo starts working for a little while once more. Coincidentally, it’s also Lotusphere time. Amazing.
Looking forward to boarding the plane to #ls12 in 7 days and a handful of hours. This year, in a radical departure, I’m staying in the Swan rather than the Dolphin. I know, I know, SO exciting. A greater departure from the norm is that I’ll be sharing a room with the wonderful Gregg Eldred, so if you see him around please do buy him a drink: he’ll probably need one🙂
Also looking forward to the @openntf AGM, which is just before the Wednesday party (usually a quietish time in the week, relatively speaking, so no excuse for not attending). And, of course, to kicking off the proceedings properly on Saturday afternoon with the great reunion and meeting of minds (and beer glasses) that is B.A.L.D., and then the Penumbra dinner on Saturday evening.
Until then …..
