Reboot badge

with 2 comments

Oh, look at that guy. Such a nerd….

What? That’s me?…
Yes, right there is my name on the badge.

I found this pic today on
on an post by Stephanie Booth.

The badges at the Reboot 9.0 Conference were great. The font size was so big that you could read anybodys name from far away. And everybody did, you could tell. (just came back from Freiburg Designforum, which was nice but the badges were tiny and single sided, wrong side points to the front all the time)
To walk around your own name at this size is almost like walking your name under WoW conditions. Privacy becomes public.
(and is the enemy of social software/web2.0)
