Sticker News (from Holland)

Lex PH2LB sends this really interesting Vice story about stickers and sticker culture.  Who knew?  The original article is in Dutch, but just hit the Google Translate button and Bob will be your uncle. 

https://www.vice.com/nl/article/wxnpp5/wie-zijn-de-mensen-die-overal-stickers-plakken

I shared with our Solder-Sticker Community these thoughts: 

Really cool Lex.   This reminds me that we need more stickers.  And maybe a new design.  The IBEW thing confuses Americans -- here it looks like a labor union thing. 

The Color Burst Liberation Army logo (below) is one possible element that we might want to include.  I think our new stickers should exhort people to DO something:  

"BUILD A SHORTWAVE RECEIVER!" 

"LIBERATE 3.579 MHz!"  

"MELT SOLDER!"  

"RESIST FT-8!"

"JUST SAY NO TO SDR!"    

Things like that. 

Thoughts?  Discuss.
