Hardison Wears AdPulp-Branded Merch At Seattle Tech Event, Helps Us Gain Traction

Tech Flash, “Seattle’s Technology News Source,” held their annual Summer BBQ and Ping-Pong Tournament, at the Showbox Sodo on Wednesday.
Portlanders Jeff Hardison of McClenahan Bruer and Nate DiNiro of UncleNate.com, made the trip to compete in foosball.
According to Tech Flash, “they also arranged in advance to get shirts from a variety of tech startups in the Portland area, then donned different shirts for each game. The idea was to show how seriously Portland takes its geeky sports, while giving their hometown companies some northern exposure.”
We at AdPulp are extremely grateful to Hardison for the idea and his execution thereof–note the t-shirt he’s holding in the photo above. Yes, it’s the AdPulp juice carton t-shirt!
