When attending conferences you often receive a badge granting you access (which usually is not much more than a nametag with some logo).
Also when working at concerts and festivals you receive a badge identifiying you as staff. I regularly keep these as souvenirs which remind me of the amazing times passed at those events.
Over the time there are now a couple of badges hanging on my closet and I think it would be nice to be able to look through them on my laptop. Thus this new Badges category in the weblog.
My idea for now is to put a new badge online every day until Christmas like some form of an Advent calendar.
