No, this isn't the contest prize, but I finally updated the Topless Robot Cafepress store with a T-shirt. More will come.

Cafepress makes these to order, so I have none to hand - but they are selling AT COST, with no markup on my end. So they ought to be the cheapest shirts of their kind on that site.

Now, on to the new site motto. As crazy as it was to go through all those entries, it made for a record-setting traffic day, so I can't complain.

Let's look at all the finalists:

Topless Robot: Keep on Geeking on.

Okay. So here is how I made my decision:

The tagline has to sum up the content of the site to even a casual reader, so in-jokes are out. I don't want something that anyone else can lay claim to, so as much as I loved "full frontal nerdity" and "our nerd is our bond," they are both already in use by other entities. I also feel like the pop-culture sphere is making the words "nerd" and "geek" so all-purpose that they barely mean anything any more.

In the end, I took one of your entries and put my own twist on it.
