I've been thinking of printing up t-shirts with the slogan "Die
techo-yuppie scum" scrawled on the front but now I think "Die ugly
corporate sons-of-bitches", in Dutch, might be better. Or maybe a selection
to gain more rack space on St. Marks Place.


According to a Wired News report:

Winners were careful with their five-word allotment. The biggest laugh of
the night followed the speech of Jodi.org, winners in the Arts category,
who snarled "Ugly corporate sons-of-bitches!" at the crowd.
