I like this format a lot more -- looks sort of like a concert tee-shirt, with
the names of all the cities toured listed in teeny tiny print all across the
back. It might even be MISTAKEN for a concert tee, and examined a little
closer because of that fact, heh. I also suspect the general public would be
more likely to appreciate something like "domain.com" than "1234567 x 2^20".

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'd certainly wear this on more than
just geekfest events!

Hear hear. (Besides, ibm.com isn't anywhere near the top, and I'd like to see
it on the shirt. :^)
