Short story about the attached image. I work in an R&D team in a large company. We use these badges to get into the office, get into various conference rooms, etc. Without it, you’re basically hosed (can’t even get into the parking lot). No big deal, but unlike companies where they’re used as name badges as well (with the employee’s photo and name on it) our badges are completely generic. Until Now.
One last note – a few others in the office have asked me for a copy of mine, so it’s spreading 🙂
We have those same badges for our building. I’ll have to dress mine up as well. 🙂
Genius. Pure genius. We had those at Yahoo and now I have an ID badge at Kaiser.
