HELLO, My Name is…

This weekend reminded me of one of the reasons I love blogs (and the Internet in general):  You can rediscover old friends who are doing amazing things.

As I was catching up on my RSS feeds, I came across Andy Sernovitz’s post on Scott Ginsberg.  If you haven’t heard about Scott, he is the Nametag guy..the only person in the world he wears a nametag 24-7.  He’s been wearing a name tag every day for the past 2,728 days (almost seven and a half years).   Scott is also an old classmate of mine from Miami University.  In fact, he started wearing his name tag shortly before he and I worked on a project together in a Computer Science class.  Back then, I had no clue if Scott would keep going with the nametag thing, but I did know he would go on to great things because he knew people.  He was the king of approachability and wearing a nametag was a tool he used to make people comfortable.

Scott has managed to turn this simple idea into a career as an author of 7 books, a public speaker, columnist and media expert.  I tell you, it feels great to see a good guy succeed at doing something he loves.

    Remember Dan Davidson’s class? Remember our marketing project about some up-and-coming singer/songwriter named “John Mayer”?
