Meaning [this is good]

What's the cool-kid, hackerish and full definition of the phrase: [this is good]?
I've seen it around, on the message boards of many web sites, and email discussion lists, and I usually just interpreted it literally. Then I saw it on a woman's T-shirt on Flickr, with many comments about the photo and shirt saying how neat it was and talk about a "first rule" (see Flickr photo here
). Sure, it's kind of geeky cute: the wearer of the T-Shirt is good. OK.
Is there something to this phrase I'm missing, or is this just people being exceptionally geeky?
