I was in a meeting today and noticed that everyone who had a laptop had at least one (if not many) stickers on their chassis. Now, I’m not a particular fan of doing this myself, I prefer a clean exterior, but it got me to thinking how laptops are our present-day footlockers.
Many of the stickers I see are from conferences they recently attended, like postage stamps of where your luggage has been. I’ll see stickers of Octo-cat or for programming languages that they are currently evangelizing. You can tell a lot about a person by the stickers they have on their laptop!
