It’s been a couple of years since there’s been a 512 Pixels t-shirt, so I wanted to do something special this time. In looking through some materials, the Lisa jumped to mind, so here we are:
According to sources there at the time, Steve Jobs insisted that the computer’s name was not in honor of his daughter, so “Local Integrated Software Architecture” was the official line. Others joked that it meant “Let’s Invent Some Acronym.”
(Obviously, the machine was named for Jobs’ daughter Lisa. He was a bit of a jerk back then.)
Regardless of its name, the LISA would be a hugely important step in the direction of the Macintosh, even if it did end up being a bit of a flop. If you want to learn a lot more about the machine, check out this column I wrote for MacStories.
As far as the shirt itself, it features a simple line drawing of the machine and includes its acronym, as you can see in the image above. At the bottom of this post is a gallery of colors the shirt is available in.
This shirt is available for sale now through May 12. I hope you enjoy it!
