Web 2.0 logo generator, but where’s the stickr generator?

Generated Image

I found this over on Steve Rubel’s blog. It’s a Web 2.0 logo generator. Meant to be a parody. But I like it! Too bad you can’t order stickrs for your laptop there. But, no, then it’d have a business model. Can’t have that!

Believe it or not, there’s a company that actually sells that free swag that you can get for free by hanging out in San Francisco on Friday evenings. Or Mike Arrington’s shindigs.

I hear they are doing thousands of dollars in the stuff per month. Damn, I have about 80 T shirts — maybe I’ll sell them on eBay to raise funds for my Windows Vista supercomputer.

By the way, I’m collecting stickers for my new 17-inch Mac. Who has some good ones? Here’s the laptop stickr pool over on Flickr.

All the cool kids have stickrs. Except Patrick. He is such an Apple fan boy that he thinks that defiling an Apple product by putting a stickr on it is sacrilegious.

  1. Your son is right. Don’t put stickers on your Mac. It definitly is sacrilegious. Don’t do it. Don’t.

  3. You didn’t know about Valleyschwag? Where have you been?! Oh yeah…Seattle. ;)

    BTW…they don’t charge for the schwag, they charge for the shipping costs and it is well worth it:

    For $15, you usually get a couple of tees, loads of stickers, buttons, etc. And stuff that you and I couldn’t get hanging in SF, either. Companies are now producing ‘special Schwag’ exclusives for ValleySchwag customers. Now, I betcha didn’t know that, did ya? ;)

    Aaaahhh. Great, Patrick! Then there’s hope for the future generation! Your dad says “all the cool kids have stickers” – but it should have been “all the 30 and 40 year old men that tries too hard to be cool have stickers”.

    Do I put brightly colored stickers on my car? No. On my house? No. TV? No. iPod? No. Stereo? No. So why on earth on the laptop?

    Stickers on your laptop are plain ugly.

  7. [...] I just discovered through Robert Scoble’s weblog a – funny – Web 2.0 logo generatr. Of course I couldn’t resist getting a 2.0 logo for my blog too. Love that beta tag though! If I just think about it, maybe the only web 2.0 not showing it I spotted so far is Newzpile. Posted by savino Filed in blogging, web 2.0, geek, startups [...]

  8. Dove vai se un marchio non ce l’hai?

    Tra il serio e il faceto è qui possibile creare il proprio logo in Web 2.0 style.

    (via Scoble)

    P.S.
    Ma voi appiccichereste mai un adesivo al vostro laptop?

  9. Don’t put a sticker on your MBP – it looks perfect unadorned. I do have a sliver MacPad (macstyles.com) that matches the original color very closely to protect the finish, so the paint won’t get discolored like my old PowerBook G4 did.

    On the other hand I do have a white Apple sticker on my Prius (which I consider essential, along with a Darwin Fish, on every car I own).

  11. I’m working on a sticker for my MacBook Pro. I’ve got some brushed aluminum contact paper from Home Depot, I’m going to use an exacto knife and cut a windows logo in it which I then back with colored plastic. If I slap that just right over the apple, it should light up and look like a windows logo. :)

  13. I have 4 stickers on my laptop:

    “Your ports are showing.”
    “If you were . you’d be ~ by now.”
    “Atari Logo”
    “Ubuntu Logo”

  15. [...] Looking at my own creation (which I haven’t kept) or the ones from Scoble, Rubel or Le Meur, they are all completely the same. And while this is just a funny little app to parody a bit the web 2.0 era, it’s actually not too far away from reality. Looking at all the new web 2.0 startups that pop up these last few weeks and months, how many original services have you noticed in between of whole bunch of digg-like, flickr-like and whatever-like services?

  16. Yes, beta’s seem to be very much the in thing at the moment. WMP11 BETA, Live Messenger BETA (OK, maybe not any more, but it was), Flickr (in beta since…who knows??), Froogle, the list goes on. These are all things that people are given by default (it’s not easy to find WMP10 these days). I thought Beta’s were meant for TESTING – not for use by the general public.
    Some of these things have been in Beta so long, I wonder if the BETA sticker is being left on to perhaps draw in more traffic.
    Personally, I’m fed up with seeing so many BETAs that are dished out to everyone by default. Surely this isn’t good practise?

    How long till shoving alpha versions down the general publics throats becomes the norm, I wonder?

  18. Robert, I have THE BEST sticker on my new (to me) 12-inch powerbook. A nice oval of Dan Maas’ illustration of the Mars Rovers. Doc M got it for me at the JPL store. Now I’m thinking that somewhere around here I have a leonardo standing man illustration that’s really an alien. Got it in Roswell, NM… Then again, I mighta given that one away. I thought about an in n out burger sticker, but it’s too large. Large I can do for the rovers, but much as I love me some in-n-out burgers, I don’t think it’ll go on a 12-inch. A 17-inch, maybe? ;)
