Immodest Alternating Current Connector

Hey there everybody.

Recently I was tasked with designing a shirt for an upcoming JDEdwards Alumni event. JDE is the honors program which I was a part of during college round 1 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The idea behind the program is to give students the knowledge to become managers who understood not only the business requirements of a given task, but also what was going on with the technology side of things as well.

I created a couple of different shirt designs, and the one that wasn't chosen for the Alumni event I decided to submit to Threadless.com. Well the shirt has made it to the voting stage, so this is where I ask you to vote for my stuff, because if you read my comic you obviously care about everything else in my life, right?. Here's the design:

My Threadless.com Submission

One of the things I see more often than I'd like is the overuse of Powerpoint in business. I really dislike Powerpoint, not because it's a bad product but because it's so easy pick up that people tend to use it in horrible, mind numbing ways.

The idea behind the shirt is that Management + Technology is more than just Powerpoint, which I thought tied in nicely with the goals of the JDEdwards Program. So if you have a moment, click on the thumbnail above (or on the sidebar for that matter) and give it a vote.

The reason it wasn't picked for the JDEdwards Alumni event is because it's a little obscure, and requires some explanation, which I kind of like in a shirt. From the comments on Threadless that people have posted so far, seems like others agree.

Thanks everybody.

hey two posts in two days. and you said you didnt have enough time. good for you.

anyways i hate to nitpick but

"The idea behind the shirt is that Management + Technology is more than just Powerpoint"

the sign that you used means not equal to.

Yes - I'm aware. But the greater than ">" - isn't quite right either.

Really I need a sign for "more than just", which doesn't exist. The main idea is that when you put management and computers together you should get Powerpoint.

Just give it a "5" on move on with your day Ben. ;)

*Shouldn't get Powerpoint. Not "should"

If I have 7 bananas and comparing them to 5 bananas I have "more than just" 5 bananas. Therefore, you are wrong, > = "more than just"

Let me know if you need anymore math help. (Or artistic help, that seemed to go over well.) I like to consider myself somewhat of a Renaissance Man.

And I doubt Ben has moved on. You're still here aren't you?

Just thought I'd let you know - I voted on the shirt. 1 is best right?
