Pearl Jam + Oracle OpenWorld

So, it was announced today that Pearl Jam would be playing at Oracle OpenWorld's appreciation event today. You can read the news here.



For about 6 months now I've been thinking how cool it would be to get someone from the band to wear an oraclenerd shirt. Originally I had approached staff at Oracle about somehow getting in touch with the band, but that wasn't to be. "Think, McFly, think." Umm, Twitter anyone? How about a campaign on twitter? Yeah, that'll do it.


Did I mention that all of this helps pay for katezilla? Yeah, it does. Let Eddie know!

Help me out here. Let's see if we can make this happen.

Great idea. However, I think I'm going to create a splinter initiative and see if they'll wear a new (ā'pěks) shirt!

This was a classic way to get eyeballs. More details.

I don't remember that one specifically but, likely, I've seen that kind of thing before.

I didn't really think of it (originally anyway) as a marketing/ad gimmick (i.e. sell more shirts), I just thought it would be cool to have someone, in one of the bands, wear one. Or I might just be FOS. I can't remember.
