@iamreff hat

I’m terrible with names.  I’m immensely awesome with faces, but I will forget your name.  *sorry*

To help me remember everyone I met, I had a hat made with just my twitter handle on it and I asked folks that I had a meaningful, valuable connection with to sign the hat.  So this is a big thank you to everyone that took the time to get to know  me, and let me get to know them.

Here are those that signed the reff hat, see you next year?

  • Reff-

    Brilliant idea. What a great way to help recall connections that are meaningful and real. Reminds me a bit of one of my favorite infographics: the Blog Tree by Eloqua http://blog.eloqua.com/the-blog-tree/

    Thanks for sharing your experiences and learnings at #SXSW for those of us that could not make it!

  • Oh sure, I know the blog tree!

    The hat was fun and it made it easy for people to find me in a crowd, but I’ve learned that Hashable is a better, digital way to track connections than a hat. =)

    Hope to see you down in Austin next year. It’s an amazing experience.

  • @bostonmike

    Great idea and I am still psyched to have prime placement right on the front of the hat! 😉

  • Thanks for the comment Mike and I must complement you on your fine penmanship. Take care.

  • The hat was a brilliant idea! And it made you easy to spot in a crowd. It was great to see you again!

  • Seeing you Nichole was a fabulous surprise. I hope to see you at IMS if not sooner. Looking forward to seeing pictures of a new baby!

  • Christine Allen – @cmajor

    That was a great time hanging out with you and the hat! 🙂

  • It was! I was so thankful to @christinemajor:disqus for showing me around SxSW. We had so much fun on the dance floors of Austin!
