Geek gift guide 2007

Misc

We’re getting down to serious shopping time for the holidays. Lucky for you, we’ve got ideas for you and the geeks you love. And like last year, we’re giving away loot.

Not just a shirt
WiFi-detecting t-shirt
From our favorite geek gift vendor, ThinkGeek, comes this seasons hottest shirt. Need to check the hotspots in your town? Just wear the shirt around on your daily travels and note the locations with the best signal. Way cool.

One Laptop per Child
Give one, get one
The most popular gift of the season just got easier to get–the deadline’s been extended so you can place orders for the One Laptop through December 31st. And the best part of this gift is the ‘get one, give one’ mantra. When you purchase a laptop for yourself, you’re automatically giving a laptop to a child in need somewhere in the world. There’s no better sentiment than that.

It seemed to me that there are probably a lot of developers out there who want to support GPL enforcement but don't have a good way to voice that support. gplenforced.org is essentially a quick and dirty hack I wrote to make that dead-simple.
