So I got my stamps ordered. I ordered three small inspection stamps (the WordPress, Automattic, and Polldaddy logos) and one regular wooden stamp with my name and email address. I wanted to keep it simple. If these stamps turn out I’ll order more with other A8C logos (VaultPress & Akismet). Since most business cards are white I’m going to stamp mine on black card stock and use white ink. I hope to get the stamps by the end of this week. Here is how I see them looking:
I have been thinking about my next project and I decided that I want to try making some neat business cards for myself. Business cards are so boring and I want to try and make mine unique. After coming across my old badge from WordCamp SF 2011 the answer was clear, I need to have a crap load of custom stamps made, get some high quality business card blanks and see what happens. I’ll post pics once I get all the supplies. If it doesn’t work out at least I’ll have a bunch of stamps to show for it.
In the first part of 2013 I took five trips spanning 38 days, 35,677 miles and visited 14 cities and 5 countries. I only have two trips planned for the rest of the year (both to San Francisco) so my days of back to back trips is probably over. I had alot of fun traveling but it will be nice to be home for longer periods of time and be able to work on some projects that I’ve been putting off for a while.
Has anyone seen a WordCamp talk about the Open Source movement in general? I looked around for one but I didn’t see any.
My ideal WordCamp talk on this subject would be one that was broken down into three parts:
- The history and origins of the Open Source movement.
- How WordPress has contributed to the Open Source movement.
- What we can do to further the Open Source movement.
