Everyone knows that professional conference goers like myself attend events not to listen to presentations, not to network but to collect schwag. Over the past couple of years I’ve done fairly well collecting tech t-shirts and I decided to create a weekly series critiquing tech companies t-shirt offerings in the expectation that a DSCF5409company with a great t-shirt is a prime candidate to have a great product also. Click here to see the series.

DSCF5408 If you’d like your t-shirt reviewed, flick me an email to arrange things. The judges decision is, of course, final and very little correspondence will be entered into (perhaps). 

Despite looking about 15 years old (and Aaron, if you’re reading this that’s a  complement), box.net founder Aaron Levie is a genuinely nice guy with a genuinely cool product. Box.net are an edgy brand, keen to jump up and go head to head with the big boys when necessary. I wrote about them yesterday – the fact they’re here to day is one of those coincidental thing that strike bloggers from time to time….

The box.net t-shirts are always kind of quirky, kind of left of centre and have that “limited edition” kind of a feeling – this one is no different.


  • I like clouds. Wearing stylized ones on my chest is even better
  • The “let’s integrate” tagline has some kind of cool connotations 😉
  • 100% cotton – did you know that conventional cotton farming is horrible to the environment and your skin?
  • Made by American Apparel – in downtown LA where even the riots have rights


  • I don’t like dark colored t-shirts – sorry
