Where's Nate?

living large in the four-oh-eight. wicked large.


itchy, scratchy, and moochy.

After spending 6+ years in tech marketing, I thought the gold mine of free schwag was the conference and trade show circuit. Which was before I arrived at B-School, where CPG companies throw all kinds of random shiite at students and we are eligible to get a subscription to the Wall Street Journal courtesy of some unnamed investment bank. Of course, all of this was prior to spending a summer at Y!, where it seems that T-shirts grow on trees.

So I'm thinking of starting a "Schwagmeter" in which I will catalog every free item I receive. Any interest in that from the loyal wheresnate readership?

    Bring it! However, you can't go out seeking schwag items. It has to land in your lap through some event you are at or trade show or place you are working :)

    Certainly...I am going to start one on my blog too. I love freebies!

    I like the catelog idea, especially if readers can bid, offer trades, or just beg for coveted items. It's the bag game meets e-bay.

    Yes! Do it. Then give me some :)

    Sounds great to me. The latest freebie I got was a memory stick - clearly the English are still trying to break free from Scotish ancestry.
