About

Heroes of the Revolution T-Shirts: Larry Wall

$2,685

77

We want t-shirts who show the Heroes of the Revolution, but not the Revolution you've probably seen on a particular popular shirt. We are open source people and our Heroes come from the Computer Revolution.

To start, we've chosen Larry Wall, the inventor of patch, Perl, Perl 6, and many other things that make our livelihoods possible. He's given us his gracious permission to use his likeness on the first shirt.

We'll create a limited run of shirt in commonly available sizes in both men's and women's styles with a reputable base all-cotton t-shirt.

Risks and challenges

Our unique challenge is shipping everything, but we've done this before. There will be a lot of boxes, lots of shipping labels, and some onerous trips to the post office. But, we are computer people. We'll figure it out with Perl.

After we ship out the shirts, some of you are going to wonder what happened since the carrier was confused with your address. Once we send out the survey to all backers and get your address, we'll give you a couple opportunities to tell us "No, really, I know my own address". If stuff comes back to us, we'll be in touch.

And, to ensure that you'll get what you expect, we'll create samples and show you how its going in the updates. We'll have more info in the FAQ, too.
