With all the news of mergers and acquisitions going around, one constant seems to be how much all our Macromedia gear may be worth on eBay some day. I thought it might be fun to take an inventory on what everyone else has out there. Admittedly I have a fair amount from attending conferences, my time as a member of Team Macromedia, working with the Macromedia Education Leaders group, and other stuff that I'm not allowed to talk about, but I'm sure there are plenty of other folks who proudly wear the "M" log, and will miss it when (and if) it goes away.
To that end let's pass the baton.
Total Macromedia Shwag in your possession:
10 t-shirts (My brother once asked me if I owned any shirts that didn't have the Macromedia logo on them.)
2 ball caps
1 lap blanket
1 CD car visor holder
1 CD case
2 Flash drives
1 fleece jacket
4 polo style shirts
1 long sleeve Team Macromedia shirt
Various and sundry pens, notebooks, and doodads
Oldest Macromedia shwag in your possession:
A white t-shirt with the two-color MM logo circa version 4 of Dreamweaver/Fireworks/Flash. It's been relegated to the lawn mowing t-shirt pile, but I haven't brought myself to part with it yet.
Last Macromedia shwag you received:
Macromedia ball cap
Most Unusual Shwag:
The lap blanket is pretty unique. I think it goes to big shots who visit the MM mothership for sales meetings. At least that's how I got mine. :-)
Shwag you wear/use most often:
The Macromedia backpack. I use it everyday carrying stuff back and forth to work and for whatever laptop I'm using at the moment.
5 Favorite Macromedia schwag items:
Fleece jacket. I don't get to wear it that often, but it sure is comfy when things cool down.
The original "</hassle>" Contribute shirt. I have four of those, and they're in constant rotation.
The backpack of course. It's just the right size to hold the common things I carry around--iPod, magazines, Tums, Advil, notebook and other odds and ends I don't want to be without.
Team Macromedia long-sleeve cotton shirt. Great fishing shirt. Really. Nice and cool.
Ball caps. Keeps that patch of bareness on the back of my head covered in the sun and looks cool to boot.
5 people I'm passing the baton to:
Oh let's see. Might as well stick to the Community MX gang to start with. How about:
and one ringer:
There you go folks. I doubt that this will get the traction that the musical baton got a little while ago, but it might be fun.
