The @Arrington T-Shirt

My old friend (and one of my favorite writers, btw) Mike Arrington aka @arrington is in the news again. This time, he’s back writing at Techcrunch, the tech blog he founded back in 2005, sold it for a bunch of money to AOL, then left under a bit of a cloud a year ago, then slowly but surely came back into the Techcrunch fold again.

A couple of months ago, Arrington tweeted something which I thought was hilarious. I liked it so much, I thought it would make a great t-shirt; especially one for wearing at geek fests like SXSW or TCdisrupt. Voila.

Mike is known for being quite controversial in public. In private, though, he can be a real sweetheart. Whatever. He’s a complex guy. It’s hard not to be when you’ve got THAT much going on, I suppose.

Congrats on everything, Mike, I’m very proud of you. Besides that, I’ve learned A TON from you, so have countelss others. Rock on.


  1. Hugh,

    Thanks for making the hipster novel for the daily cartoon. That made me laugh because on a ski trip last year we started hipster hunting. Also, just wanted to post to thank your engaged fans for dropping by my site. Very appreciative. I invite you, Hugh, staff, and fans to join If I Knew Now for Halloween today and Wednesday if you have time.
    I passed the hipster cartoon on…wow that was great!

    Have a wonderful week and stay safe on the coast.

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
