Reddit’s r-trees Group Makes it Mellow for Everyone

Reddit-r-trees Sticker stickergiant

For those of you unfamiliar with Reddit, the idea is simple - harness the power of the people and the internet to make popular news stories that might otherwise not make it to the forefront of the community. It’s a way to share information and opinions, bringing together people from all walks of life.

One such group that has been making waves on Reddit is the /r/trees page, a collective of people interested in all things smoke-ably green. It’s a fun way to discuss a hobby, an interest, and the news that is making headlines all across the world from cannabis now being legal in several states.

What would you expect a sticker to look like for a group like this? Exactly like the one they made! One look says it all - it’s fun, whimsical, and instantly recognizable to those in the know. Displaying a sticker from /r/trees means you’re in the loop and can easily find others that share your same way of life. Colorful and simple in meaning, a sticker like this can create a social media army like you've never seen before!

If you have a different /r/ on Reddit just like the /r/trees page and would like to promote your page you should get some custom stickers like they have.

Happy Belated Birthday, OpenStack!

Open Stack 3rd Birthday Sticker

If you want to know what's hot in the software world these days, you've got to look to the crowd and the cloud.  OpenStack is a hugely successful open source cloud operating system, originally created by Rackspace and the The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), back in 2010.

The goal?

To enable any organization regardless of size to create and offer cloud computing services running on standardized hardware.

The OpenStack Foundation followed in 2012 and the efforts took off. In a mere three years, the worldwide OpenStack community has grown to include more than 10,500 people in over 120 countries. That's stratospheric! We recently printed these awesome custom stickers to commemorate OpenStack's third birthday.

This video from Rackspace provides a great introduction to the platform ...

Ready to immerse yourself in the world of open source cloud computing? Hop over to your favorite travel site and book a flight! The OpenStack Summit will be held from November 5-8 in Hong Kong, at the Asia World-Expo.

Goldfire Studios Breaks the Rules

Goldfire Studios

We love it when our customers send us unboxing photos!

GoldFire Studios breaks the rules ... the rules that say an Internet game developer needs to be located in an ultra-hip latte-sipping locale like San Francisco, Seattle, Austin, or New York City.

High-rent districts? Fuggetaboutit!

Based in Oklahoma City, GoldFire builds cross-platform, real-time games with community at their core.

GoldFire Studios is a web-based game development studio located in downtown Oklahoma City. We specialize in browser-based, real-time multiplayer games that utilize the latest web technologies such as HTML5, Node.js and MongoDB. Our goal is to turn the web into the ultimate gaming platform by providing truly original gaming experiences for players all over the world. We envision a future of truly social games where community is the focus, and "social" actually means social interactions, not just a connection to a social network.

James Simpson planted the seeds for GoldFire Studios back in 2002, when he was just 14 years old. The company is growing and they're currently looking for engineers versed in HTML5, Javascript, Node.js and MongoDB.





Why does that R/Trees sticker look so, um, sticky? Well, we'll let them tell you:
Welcome to Trees.. the ultimate homegrown. A special community to get high with. Mature cannabis culture merges with education to discuss activism, cultivation, industry, medicine, recreation, & science. The place to share for the public's good about humanity's known friend cannabis. We r/ believers that the more 420 conscious & knowledgeable people.. the safer we all are.

Come on now, dear readers, we all know the days of Reefer Madness are long gone, right? Even the stalwarts of citizenship, the Chicago City Council, are contemplating decriminalization. That's right: the City that Works could become the City that Just Kinda Hangs Out and Stuff Happens.

HUMMER 4x4 Off Road

Even though the last Hummer vehicle rolled out of the GM factory in 2010, the spirit of the king of  SUVs—and its lesser-used acronym cousin, the SUT—lives on.

HUMMER 4x4 Off Road provides owners of the big dog an online forum for posting questions, arranging meetups, and sharing their love of the late, great mega-ride.

Launched as a commercial vehicle in 1992, the Hummer was GM's version of the super-tough military vehicle. Like the Jeep was after WWII. Fun fact: the first one went to Arnold Schwartzenegger.

BTW, AM General is still making Humvees for the military. Or HMMWVs in Army-speak—which stands for high mobility multi-purpose wheeled vehicle. The U.S. military has hundreds of acronyms, from A2 to ZULU, that we're guessing makes someone's life easier. Equally fascinating—though much more family-unfriendly and therefore way more humorous—are the myriad slang terms that have come out of our armed forces. Proceed with caution, kids!
