I’ve always wanted to get my hands on some serious schwag from the tech companies in the states. Badges, stickers, t-shirts, USB pens etc. The only stuff I’ve ever managed to collect was from Microsoft’s Dev days and their Visual Studio 2005 launch – which were both awesome – the amount of money Microsoft spend on marketing is really scary! Anyway, as I was saying, to get your hands on these things, you either go off to Google’s Store or have loads of cash to go and attend SXSW in Texas every year.
But now there is another way! Valleyschwag has opened up and will send you some really awesome schwag from silicon valley every month. Best of all is they deliver to SA! The price is also not that bad aswell, considering you’ll be getting a t-shirt every month. $23.95 per month, including shipping. Thats around R144.
I’m considering signing up for a month to see if the hype is all worth it. (A guy actually is selling a valleyschwag bag minus the t-shirt on e-bay. Wierd.)
BTW, check out their blog for a couple of hints on what to expect in a schwag bag.
