Trouble in Myanmar

Impress your globally-conscious friends with this one: Trouble in Myanmar t-shirt. Btw, not to take undue credit, but I wonder if The T-Shirt Project ("We diagram the news on shirts") was influenced by my t-shirts as media piece in Wired. [via]


This is like T-post

Not really. T-Post is a subscription t-shirt service (which I subscribe to). The T-Shirt Project isn't a subscription service. And the content is different -- T-post is random design tees; The T-Shirt Project is all about news.

This is Rich from The Shirt Project.

I didn't even notice the article on Wired until you mentioned it! Very cool. I'm a subscriber, but don't check the website very often - was this in the print edition?

@Rex - The shirt project is a subscription service - similar to T-post. We are, however, not-for-profit and will likely only run for a year. The project is an experiment, our results will be exhibited at the beginning of next summer. We sell the shirts just to print the next round and actually lose some money on subscriptions.

It was part of the "Snack Culture" issue in print. It's actually cooler that you didn't see it, cuz it makes my theory better. :)

But if they're "impressed" by having a Mynamar t-shirt woudn't they be upset that it used "Mynamr" instead of "Burma"?
