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!

SXSW T-Shirt Sightings

I’d love to hear which one of these are your favorites! Was there a startup tee that caught your eye? What do you think of all the Threadless sightings? Do you know of a shirt that should be added to this list? Leave a comment below in the comments section and let me know!

BTW, looks like Storenvy is one of the sponsors – cool! Visit The Startup Bus.
