In order to promote our book on ASP.NET MVC and to spread some love for the library itself, for the Italian ALT.NET conference I printed 40 T-Shirts similar to the one that Chad Myers created on Zazzle last year.

It was quite an interesting experience, as I didn’t know how many people would have been interested in buying such “marketing” t-shirts. And it turned out that quite a few developers wanted them, as you can notice from the people in the first rows of the room.

I ran out of T-Shirts, but I’m thinking about making some more of them: would someone of you be interested? Please, answer in the comments.

On Flickr I uploaded more pictures of people wearing the runat=FAIL t-shirt at the Italian ALT.NET Conference.

Next time, Make the runat ="success" , fail is oppositive and interesting.However, I think to make it 'success' as good as 'fail' interesting note. :-)
I would love to have that T-shirt. :-)

The idea behind the t-shirt is that the server form tag is causing more problem that it tries to solve, and the server tag is maked by the runat attribute, so runat=FAIL... make it ="success" will be like promoting the webform instead of ASP.NET MVC.

Yeah, after seeing this post I too removed codeclimber from my rss feed list.

The content on this blog no longer interests me.

While trying to stay on the subject, Simo posts this in relation to a topic that his blog has orientated about for sometime now. Getting these t-shirts made out of his own pocket is a sign of how passionate he is regarding the MVC. Phillip and Brad if your here for a certain reason why don't you let Simo know and maybe he can put posts together to cater for everyone rather than posting negative comments?

I ran out of T-Shirts: I'll make more for the Autumn.
I was also thinking of setting up a store on caffepress or something similar.

To Brad and Phillip: I guess Si already answered. Anyway I can understand what you saying: lately I'm not posting technical post as much as I'd like to... but everybody has these kind of periods on their blog. Too bad you provided fake email address and I cannot email to you directly

@Si, I didn't post anything negative about the blog, I simply said it no longer interests me.

@Simone. I don't remember if I posted an email address or not, but if I did it would have been one of my real one.

Here it is anyway, if you really want to email me.

Hi Simone,
A T-Shirt with a good thing about ASP.NET MVC would be more meaningful.

Rather than printing something negative about ASP.Net Webforms (which, whilst not perfect, are FAR better than what went before them), why not print something positive about ASP.Net MVC?
