Our guardian angel of all things Webby

Poster of TBL overlooking our office

Our office is a very functional, boys’ office just now, with very little in terms of personalization or decoration. So I set about starting to change that this afternoon. But what kind of wall coverings should a couple of Information Architects / Web Managers have?

Steve started things off with a cycling calendar. We also managed to recover the white board which was removed from that room before it was carted off to the great landfill in the sky. But that’s back to functionality again, isn’t it. What to do? What to do?

And then it came to me. Like a eureka moment, during epiphany. Or something.

What we needed was a huge photograph of TBL overlooking our goings on, making sure that we were doing everything by the (online) book.

TBL: inventor of the World Wide Web; big cheese at the World Wide Web Consortium, aka W3C, and general all-round guardian angel of all things Webby and Standards-y. And he will be present at the www2006 conference I’m attending tomorrow in Edinburgh.

(In case you were wondering: I used the stand-alone, and free, Rasterbator application to convert the photograph to the 3 x 3 poster.)
