Stack Overflow is turning 10 soon, and we're going to be throwing some shindigs here and there to help celebrate it. While some of it will be exclusively on MSO, quite a bit of it will be asking all of our friends to join in. I don't want to spoil it, but it's mostly going to involve us giving you stuff.
What's really, really cool is, right after these festivities, we'll soon be heading into another installment of Winter Bash! So the fun days start a little sooner this year, neat! Hence, we've gotta get a better feel on what we need to stock up on in general, so I'm asking here.
We could use some inspiration.
We're good with T-shirts and stickers, but we'd like to do some special stuff for the anniversary. When's the last time you said HAPPY TENTH BIRTHDAY HERE, HAVE A CHEESY PEN! -- I know, right? And while I'll argue that an abacus could be a thought that counts, we're hoping to get a little more original.
We'd like to get a feel - would folks like wearable stuff more than, say, stuff that would look nifty on a desk or a shelf? Would you be up for consumables like, say, gourmet jelly beans (totally Vegan) or chocolates, or perhaps more utility-oriented stuff like bluetooth speakers, messenger bags, etc? (Well, I guess bags are wearable, but hopefully you get what I'm after)
We can't promise anything, but we're going to be ordering the minimum of quite a few things in preparation for having a bunch of smaller events.
I reiterate, we'll have plenty of shirts and stickers.
Don't worry about the usual stuff, we're more interested in some limited edition just to celebrate Stack Overflow turning 10, and one heck of a year in general.
Any ideas or inspiration? We're going to be sending final ideas to our printer in about a week, and ordering quantities based on demand from the events we throw, so speak up soon if there's something in particular that strikes your fancy.
