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 company with a great t-shirt is a prime candidate to have a great product also.

Julie Tangen from the Appirio (more on them here) media agency dropped me an email and asked me if I’d like to look at some of the t shirts they had. A couple of weeks later a package turned up for me with a host of Appirio shirts in it – all in black. Look for more Appirio schwag in upcoming reviews.
