Scott had to check the bag wasn’t a special prize

Speaker Scott Berkun thought we did some things right:

the webstock bag doesn’t look like a conference bag: it looked so good I had to ask twice to make sure it was the conference bag, and not some special prize.

… The t-shirt …

Came in women’s and men’s versions. Why should I care as a man? Well, I confess: I like to look at women. Especially when they’re wearing clothes meant to fit their curvy figures. I always hear people complain about the low numbers of women at design and tech conferences. Well, maybe if they followed some of webstock’s ideas, more women would be interested in finding out about their conferences.

The bag rocked

Simone Hindin:

And there was some great stuff – first of all the bag rocked. And one of displays, an outfit called VERB down in Timaru, were giving away very cute robot toys.

I bought some neat stuff on the Thursday evening when they had Craft 2.0 during the cocktails. I bought badges from supervery and lusted after artwork by Sam Broad (check out this guy’s moustache) and toys and art by Minu.
