Free Steve T-shirt spotted in wild

This is a dude waiting for an iPhone in Cincinnati wearing one of our T-shirts. Good thing you got the shirt when you did because the interns have just informed me that Cafe Press has put a halt to the shirts with the drawing Steve Jobs-slash-Dave Winer on them.

Can you feel the love tonight?

Yes, it’s true. RSJ told the audience at the D conference today that he’s a big fan of the blog. Now if we can just get him to appear in public wearing a “FREE STEVE” T-shirt, we’ll be over the moon. BTW apparently Goatberg was disappointed. I’m pretty sure he’s not a big fan of the blog.

The "Free Steve" movement is spreading

Note the T-shirt on the guy in the above cartoon from Macsimum News, a Mac publication. You can see the original cartoon here. Nice. Much love to Jean-Paul Buquet, the fantastic illustrator from Japan who did the cartoon.

Just a reminder

I’m totally not kidding about this: Someone very close to RSJ placed an order for a bunch of these shirts today, according to our interns in Krasnodar, who are in charge of running the Fake Steve Cafe Press shop. Just remember, WWDC is June 11, less than two weeks away. So you might want to pick one up. Or a bunch, and sell them, or give them out to homeless people who’ll be loitering outside the Moscone Center. Remember, your Dear Leader is still under threat from the federal government. Show your support!

Another design from Mikolaj

Much love to Mikolaj Kamler and Zuzanna Orlinska at Manufaktura in Warsaw for this new design for our “FREE STEVE” series. Get them while they’re hot at the Fake Steve Cafe Press shop. The model shown is beautiful organic cotton, very soft.

Also: I’m sorry to report that Cafe Press does not make mock turtlenecks. If anyone has a source for these and wants to help out, send email.

You know you want it

Who wouldn’t? So go here and get one for that special lady in your life.

A call to arms

Apple faithful, it is time for us to send a message to the world. Specifically, to the S.E.C. and the U.S. Attorney for Northern California. For months these frigtards have been hounding me. Distracting me. Tearing me away from the important work of creating beautiful objects that restore a sense of childlike wonder to people’s lives. And though Apple has been cleared, I have not. Sure, I’ve tried to put on a brave face even while Fred and Nancy make up lies about me in order to save their own backsides. But the threat still hangs over my head, like a sword of Hercules.

So Apple PR has come up with a great idea. It’s a visual statement. A way to tell the feds, “Leave our Dear Leader alone.” They’ve drawn inspiration from that scene in “V for Vendetta” when all of London comes out dressed as Guy Fawkes to confront the fascist government pigs.

The idea is this. If you’re coming to the WWDC, wear this T-shirt. We’ll organize a rally in the plaza and bring in the press. Imagine thousands of us, together, dressed in long-sleeve black T-shirts and proclaiming in one voice: FREE STEVE.

Can ordinary people really band together to convince their government to stop the harassment of innocent individuals?

In the words of John Lennon: Imagine.

The shirts are available exclusively at our official Cafe Press store. The PR team went a little crazy and also made up Free Steve bumper stickers, dog shirts, teddy bear, baby outfits — even a Free Steve thong.

Much love to our graphics partner, Mikolaj Kamler of Manufaktura in Warsaw. He did the design.
