As this useR! is over, I guess it's a bit too late for a useR! 2004
shirt.

In general, I would agree with you that it would be nice (and not only
for fun) to have shirts (and coffee mugs and basecaps and ...) with R
logos or maybe useR! logos. This has been discussed now and then and if
I recall it correctly the reason that nobody actually started doing it
is that you would have to spend some time setting it up - and most
people prefer writing R code instead of mailing R shirts around the
world. Time was the main reason for me not do organize shirts for the
useR! - there were so many other things to do and prepare.
Another point which always kept me from thinking about something like
this more seriously is the poor quality of the R logo.
But John Fox mentioned in a discussion that instead of some R user
doing the work, maybe there are T-shirt mailorders around which could do
most of the work. So maybe I will have the time to look at this.

Best wishes from Vienna,
Achim
