SXSW 2010: A Haven for Geeky and Techie T-Shirts!

So the Interactive portion of the SXSW Festival has come and gone. I wasn’t able to attend this year but I did have a blast shirt spotting vicariously through other peoples Flickr uploads! Ahh, the wonder of the Internet!

The purpose of shirt spotting SXSW 2010 was not just to find geeky tees but also so that I could share information on new startups that you would rather not have heard of. In the process, I also became exposed to a bunch of new blogs via the profiles of the various Flickr users from who I got the photos from. Putting this collection together took a lot of time, but at the end of the day, it was totally worth it!

Here’s full collection of all 83 shirts spotted at the 2010 SXSW Interactive Festival! I thought I’d consolidate my 5 daily recap posts into one humungous list post!

4. The Startup Bus, photos by dekrazee1. The Startup Bus is the brainchild of Elias Bizannes, an Australian now living in America. The original concept was for 12 strangers to board a bus in San Francisco – and at 60 miles an hour and over 48 hours – they were to conceive, build and launch 3 tech startups in time for a SxSW party in Austin. BTW, looks like Storenvy is one of the sponsors – cool! Visit The Startup Bus.
