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.

I'm Dan and this is my blog. I'm a former high school math teacher and current head of teaching at Desmos. He / him. More here.


  1. 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)

  2. 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!

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

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

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

  6. 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.

  7. 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. :)

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

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

  12. hilarious –
    \hi-ˈler-Ä“-É™s, hÄ«-\ – marked by or causing boisterous merriment or convulsive laughter.

    Dan’s post – #!%*@ HILARIOUS!
