Nerd Badges

Page history last edited by Robert Trio 13 years, 10 months ago

MCN’s 2010 Conference in Austin will include Nerd Badges. They are based on the popular foursquare badges. foursquare is a cross between a friend-finder, a social city-guide and a game that rewards you for doing interesting things.





Designs are currently being refined but the general idea is that there will be several badges that participants will be able to earn at the conference:


Here are some samples:



  • 1st Time Participant

1st timer



  • Exhibitor
  • Exhibitor

  • Planning Committee
  • Program Committee

  • Presenter
  • Speaker

    Robert, these are AWESOME! Can't wait to start collecting mine!
    One quick suggestion - since the MCN Board (including our current President) does contain quite a few ladies, maybe something more gender neutral? A gavel? I'll post back if I think of something more whimsical...

    Richard - that's a great idea. A gavel is a pretty simple design that could be incorporated very easily. Thanks.
