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.

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).

DSCF5092 Idealog is a New Zealand magazine (both print and online) that’s New Zealand’s best business magazine. I write for idealog, both print and online and always enjoy a banter with their expansive twitter personage(s). The Idealog crew neck is an organic cotton creation with a massive front print.
