Reactees are customized t-shirts printed with a slogan and a keyword that can be sent to a shortcode, and then the sender gets a message back to find out more about the message that they saw on the shirt in the first place.
I was inspired, and created a shirt for Coworking:
http://reactee.com/COWORKING to get your own, they’re only $25. I’ve updated the link to use a referral code. We receive 20% of every shirt sold, and that will NOT be going into my pocket but instead into an account that will be used to help fund Independents Hall.
Currently the keyword is set to kick back the first line from the coworking wiki:
Coworking is cafe-like community/collaboration space for developers, writers and independents http://wiki.coworking.info
Who knows what kind of conversation we can start with these kinds of walking billboards zooming around the place. I’m really excited to wear mine!
You can try it without a tee!
Just SMS ‘coworking’ to 41411 to get the intro text, or ‘sub coworking’ to 41411 to subscribe to future sms messages. It ain’t twitter, but twitter might want to take some cues on groups from these guys. They set up a pretty flexible admin!
also, I don’t make a dime off referral sales (or sales of the shirt i made). I don’t think I do, anyway.
Again: We now receive 20% of every shirt sold through this link only, and that will NOT be going into my pocket but instead into an account that will be used to help fund Independents Hall. Thanks for your support!
