The Facebook Shirt

| | |

While at LinuxFest Northwest 2015 I got my hands on a nice black fedora t-shirt. I've been wearing the t-shirt for a while now and have come to the conclusion that the "f" logo, logo colors, combined with the use of the word "friends" printed around the logo equates to poor marketing. There are other obvious words such as freedom which any good Linux fan boy or girl would zero in on. But as a general rule, most folks want to know why I am wearing a Facebook t-shirt. That response is pretty universal. They see the color and the letter "f" as well as the design of the letter and instantly equate the "f" to Facebook. Some even consider the printing of the word "friends" to be further proof that the t-shirt is really a Facebook t-shirt. I actually think it's a missed opportunity, but I guess it is what it is. Now if you will excuse me, I think I will go burn some fedora installation disks, write "Facebook OS" on them and start dropping them around town.
