You can now buy Dancing Tesla Tee Shirts at Spreadshirt or at Skreened (Skreened is pricier but guarantees all products made in the USA & sweatshop-free). If anyone does buy one, I would love to see a photo or get a review of the quality.
Also, for the two people on this list who aren't already my LJ friends, I have a Cavalcade of Tesla Art going on in that there place!

Why: To bring attention to this special and valuable place in our own community. The Tesla Laboratory was designed by renowned architect Stanford White for his friend Nikola Tesla, the inventor and developer of radio, alternating current generation, remote control, robotics, neon light- ing, and much more. It is a place of national historic signiﬁcance and should be preserved. The National Trust for Historic Preservation has asked people across America to identify places that are important. They want photographs of people near the places that matter. The Wardenclyffe site is an excellent example of a signiﬁcant place that should be protected. You: Be part of the “This Place Matters” group photograph for inclusion on the website of the National Trust for Historic Pres- ervation. Learn about the importance of the Wardenclyffe site. Find out how you can help to save this treasure in the Shoreham commu- nity. Come to support the preservation of this signiﬁcant place! Let the world know that “This Place Matters!”
Tesla's only surviving laboratory, Wardenclyffe, is being sold by Afga Corporation for $1.6 million. They have threatened to tear down the buildings and clear the land if the future owners request it. The Tesla Science Center is raising money to buy the laboratory and turn it into a museum for all the kids (and geeky adults) to enjoy.
