I am getting really serious about attending TCOYD in DC in February. I'd like to put together a badge with my avatar on it with my TuDiabetes identity and then give out cards or something to people.

But I can't for the life of me see any resources for that? Is such a thing useful? Does DHF want me to do this? Is there a standard badge that I might print up just like my badge for a page? What about some sort of card to print up with the website?

Watch out for copyright stuff w/ Alf! A band I was in in college ran into some issues and got a "cease and desist" letter from the attorney!

Actually, I think I am safe. Apparently, Mad fended off a lawsuit by claiming they stole it from someone else.

When Mad was sued for copyright infringement by a woman claiming to hold the rights to the image, the magazine argued that it had copied the picture from various materials dating back to 1911 (which pre-dated the plaintiff's own claim). The lawsuit was unsuccessful, and the boy's face is now permanently associated with Mad.

I really do need to be careful about saying anything about Scientology.

I love this idea. The easiest thing to do would probably be to create something in Word and then buy some stock business cards at Staples and print it out. Shouldn't be too hard.

I sent a note to Emily and she is going to help me out. I'm going to urge DHF to try to get some resources on-line for this.

I had some cards printed out by VistaPrint that I designed to hand out, if I can still find the jpg do you want it?

Hoping to attend too if life cooperates!

There may be something with your browser settings. You should not have to join, you should be able to see the pages and register without joining. Here is a link directly to the DC event, perhaps that will work.

Are you going to travel all the way from Portland to join us?

I hope Emily sends you some of our brochures, they are beautiful. wish I could go, but I just was there visiting my mom. I'd love to meet you!
