Phil in the Daring Fireball T

My Daring Fireball T-shirt arrived today.  It’s quite daring.  Like a fireball.

You people need to remind me to shave before I pose for the entire world next time.  Such a savage, I.

it seems to me more nerdy to know why that shirt is nerdy than to be personally sporting it…
nice shirt with a star on it, phil :P

Daring Fireball is probably the best independent Mac journalism site out there.  It’s run solely by John Gruber and it excels in one thing: the best damn Mac news you can find.  He’s sharper than a fresh sword and cuts faster than greased lightning.

The shirt is part of the membership push he initiated shortly ago.  There are very few sites I’d even consider paying for and even fewer that I would actually donate to.  Daring Fireball might just be the most likely one out of them all.

Thanks for the clarification, Phil…us non-nerds had no idea what the hell everyone was excited about…It is a good-looking shirt.
