Stress Balls at a Technology Conference? Why?

I've just returned from the technology conference in Austin and I'm astounded to find that I have brought nineteen stress balls home with me, all giveaways.


Why? Why so many stress ball giveaways at a technology conference?

And if, as one might be lead to believe, there are so many stress ball giveaways at a technology conference because technology causes stress, then why this stress ball? How can this be helpful?

  1. Fun? I have few on my desk, a ball, a frog, a cow and a van odd things to give away I know

  2. Well, I suppose they are easy giveaways and useful when one is trying to lean back and think. You could squeeze it or throw it up and catch it, etc. That being said, having a husband who has been in the technology field for over 30 years - yep, there is definitely stress and pressure. Not sure all the younger ones feel so much of it, but the older ones do. Enjoy your 'stress balls'! LOL

  3. Fun giveaways! Must be a new trend.

  4. That is interesting. one for each finger may be :)
    Happy WW!

  5. I work in IT. Stress balls are good prevention for carpel tunnel.

  6. I've always liked the brain stress ball. Maybe more in demand then a pen?

    1. I came home with two brains. Brain stress balls, that is.

  7. they look cute! I didn't know they were good to prevent Carpal. Had that once, do not want it again ... looks around for a stressball.

  8. That's really funny! I am going to the CUE conference next month and I'll have to take notice of the stress balls.

  9. I had no idea that stress balls came in so many shapes and sizes. Judging by your colorful collection, you should be stress-free for years to come!

  11. Computers constantly stress me out, but they equally amaze and delight me.
