The C.U.L.T. Shirt preliminary design plan has been chosen!

By Andrew Pollack on 10/14/2008 at 09:15 PM EDT

In a secret meeting held deep beneath the surface of the earth, protected from the sophisticated eavesdropping gear used against us, Lotus Geek and I met to discuss the shirts for Lotusphere 2009.

We held a planning session with the aid of some good friends -- one of whom is a former candidate for the Nobel prize for fashion and design, another of whom is a graduate from the Sorbonne with a degree in humor, a masters degree in wit, and a PhD in repartee, and a third -- who's presence was unknown even to the other two, and may be also known elsewhere as The Stig.

The actual design is locked somewhere so frightening that not even those present at the meeting would dare tread. Deep within my own mind. The discussion of the design however, has now been agreed and we're moving forward. I could tell you all what it is, but then I'd have to remove your internet access.

I can tell you that we're very close to opening the unofficial top ten list for your suggestions, and that we think you'll have plenty of them.

I can also tell you that at current count, we have 8 sponsors already committed -- so there's a good chance you'll get a shirt if you show up.

Here are some sensible rules for web site advertisingAn increasing number of websites are now detecting when users have ad-blocking enabled, and refuse to show content unless you "whitelist" their site (disable your ad-blocking for them). I think that is a fair decision on their part, it's how they pay for the site. However, if you want me (and many others) to white list your site, there are some rules you should follow. If you violate these rules, I won't whitelist your site, I'll just find content elsewhere. 1. The total space taken up by advertisements ......
