During an in-depth discussion about the Institute, Mike Jackson (our Software Architect) summarised our raison d'être by saying "Better software, better research". A simple four-word phrase that perfectly describes the Institute's philosophy. Until that date, no one was aware of Mike's gift for poetry.
Of course, such a snappy phrase had to be emblazoned on a T-shirt. But it wasn't until we started wearing the T-shirts that we discovered that Better Software, Better Research chimed with a lot of people in the research community, and that many of them wanted a T-shirt for themselves. To fulfil this demand, we have now set up a T-shirt shop at Spreadshirt.
