A Tcl-Wear Chronology

A history of tee shirts, hats, office toys and other Tcl-related paraphernalia

Compiled by Tom Poindexter, October 25, 1998, last update February 12, 2000.

Tcl: not only great software, but also things you can wear! Tcl enthusiasts have created a line of tee shirts, hats, office toys and other items. Many items have been created to promote books, given to tutorial attendees, and just general good will. This list is a history of Tcl related items (including one-of-a-kind) that are in circulation about the Tcl community.

Please send additions and corrections to tpoindex@nyx.net I'm especially interested in images for things I don't have, and correcting any entry that is incorrect.

Each active link in the table points to individual photos, or you can see all the images (in no particular order) in one mondo list . Many individual photo pages have additional comments, so be sure to visit those pages too.

Notes:

$$ - item was available for purchase

Many items given to attendees of various tutorials presented at Tcl conferences and AT&T/Lucent training courses.

"By request", a catch all term meaning the item was given out to supporters, or if you asked politely you might receive one.

Many thanks to SLS, SWC, TM, and JMP for assisting in graphic production.
Thanks to Frank Stajano for the Smoking Alien images.
Thanks to John Gillespie for the Bisque is Beautiful/Hello World images.
