The NECC 2008 Merch Table

Scott McLeod issued a call for button designs mid-April, for use at NECC, working with the slogan, “I’m Here For The Learning Revolution.”

My submissions wandered a mile or two from his chosen theme (distractable, can’t help it) so I won’t hold my breath for the win. I will, however, take this moment to announce the grand opening of the dy/dan mercantile.




Buttons: $75.
Tees: $90. Two for $180.

Leave your order, size, and credit card number in the comments. I’ll take care of the rest.

    Brilliant. That’s all I can say.

    Do you accept PayPal?

    Dan, these are awesome. I’d wear some of these (at NECC and elsewhere). Please, please set up a CafePress shop?

    Look, y’all need to just lighten up and learn to laugh at … wait … what?

    Oh. Um. Thanks, guys.

    The price tag’s a bit steep for my salary, but I’m debating between B1, B10, T1, and T2.

    I love button #1…. I feel that way often :)

    However, the price is a bit out of my league as Sarah said heheh

    2 for $180?

    There’s no other place you can find a better deal.

    Is it $75 for one button or all? Doesn’t matter, send me all of them. And 3 shirts for $270. I did that right, didn’t I?

    I don’t have a credit card handy but have several Arby’s coupons I’m hoping you’ll accept.

    (Fingers tightly crossed)

    Dude, seriously, move the decimal point over as appropriate and sell this stuff for real! You’ll make a mint on “I”m my entire PLC” alone!

    The question is, will Jakes eat that button if we get him one?

  10. on 01 May 2008 at 4:38 amGraham Wegner

    How about one that says “All My Edublogger Friends Went To NECC And All I Got Was This Stupid Button/T-Shirt” ?

  11. on 01 May 2008 at 5:04 amChris Lehmann

    T3 describes SLA faculty meetings. *sigh* ;)

    And yes, Will, Jakes would definitely wear one.

    I like B8 and T3.

    Brought a smile to my face today. Thank you!

    I agree with tappet and McLeod — put ’em on Cafe Press. I would totally pimp an “I’m my entire PLC” button around campus.

    Way too funny!!

  15. on 01 May 2008 at 6:56 amQ

    PLC = Programmable Logic Controller? I feel stupid for not getting the joke. Someone let me in on it!

  16. on 01 May 2008 at 10:59 amSarah

    PLC = Professional Learning Community

    Ah, ed-lingo.

  17. on 01 May 2008 at 12:56 pmQ

    Thanks. Somehow I missed the memo on that one. I have so much to learn! Someone’s gotta make a newbie cheatsheet…

  18. on 01 May 2008 at 2:26 pmRich

    Dang, pot roast nachos sound mighty good right about now…. How about I skip the button and just pay you to make/send some of those nachos to me?

    Seriously though (relatively speaking), I do like the “I’m My Entire PLC” button too.

  19. on 01 May 2008 at 6:23 pmJackieB

    I’m still waiting for the Cafe Press link. One more button suggestion? “@ddmeyer doesn’t follow me” Think of all of the sales you’d have. :)

  20. on 01 May 2008 at 7:21 pmDavid Jakes

    Send me a gross of the Pot Roast Nacho buttons. Giddy up.

  21. on 01 May 2008 at 8:01 pmJen

    What does it say about me that I’m really taken by how glisten-y the light spot on those buttons is. They look like supernatural M&Ms. I only want a button if it really looks like that. If it does, then I want them all.

    P.S. Thanks for the link to that post — it was exactly the one I was looking for and it worked its way right into a paper. Then my thank you email kicked back at me and uh, I forgot to try again!

  23. on 01 May 2008 at 9:19 pmMichael K.

    Lot of comments. A lot. If you make one rhyming “Six foot seven” and “minutes in heaven,” I’ll buy.

  24. on 02 May 2008 at 8:20 pmdan

    What is this “cafe press?”

  25. on 03 May 2008 at 5:01 amJackieB

    Create your own custom products. Although I think you might need to reexamine your pricing.

  26. on 03 May 2008 at 2:20 pmbryonm

    the designs are cool. the prices are nuts.

  27. on 04 May 2008 at 9:13 amdan

    I admit I’ve positioned them as kind of a luxury item. Like an iPhone or deodorant.

  28. on 04 May 2008 at 7:09 pmGina Marie

    Don’t worry Q, I Googled PLC, and then when the results didn’t match anything to do with education, I tried: PLC and teacher.

    Got it.

    And now you’re in. Also: the secret handshake is a regular handshake just really really vigorous.
