I find myself looking at swag I have collected from conferences recently - both swag my company has given away and swag collected from other conferences…. and I find myself asking - what is the coolest thing people have ever got as swag from a conference?
On my desk and in my computer bag I have the following:
- Wind-up network cable with adapters for telephone use, from Bindview, Blackhat 2004 I think
- 4 port USB hub (USB 1.1 not 2.0 unfortunately), my company, Blackhat 2004 I think
- USB light, from Sophos, InfoSec 2005 in the UK
- USB flash drives in various small sizes (32M, 64M), various (including my company), various conferences
- Glowing pen (lame but amusing), my company, various conferences
Out of all of these, the USB light is probably the coolest, and the wind-up cable is probably the most useful.
What’s in your bag that came from conferences?
From the comments so far you guys must go to better conferences than I do ;-)
