My office wall is increasingly adorned with the various name badges and passes I’ve collected over recent months. Memories of some of the things I’ve done recently.
The photo on Flickr has notes for each, linking to blog posts about the respective events.
While many places request you hand your badge in afterwards, I try to keep hold of my name badge wherever possible. I was recently very pleased to discover I’m not alone in this mini-obsession. Both Ren (no relation) Reynolds and I had the same conversation with someone on the way out of Virtual Worlds Coventry (imagine “um, actually, I’d like to keep it if that’s ok”, in stereo). It may seem odd, but it’s become a habit.
At the risk of gathering even more clutter, I may even start doing the same thing with cinema tickets.
