Firstly, though she doesn’t feature as a solo cape character anywhere (yet), this post is dedicated to the wonderful Eilis Boyle who was the reason i got to go to the Web Summit and thus the reason you all got capes :)
On the tuesday evening before the summit, i was at home drinking soup and watching everything summity starting to kick off on Twitter. I noticed the ‘liveteam’ hashtag, which was a group selected to tweet various events and activities over the two days of the summit and what a job they did! Not only were they helpful to people attending the conference, but they shared live information, facts, ideas, experiences and statistics with everyone outside of the conference who logged on to twitter too. I thought ‘liveteam’ sounded a little like a superhero crew, so i checked if they had capes. They didn’t. But there was some definite interest in getting some, and so the madness began.
I drew capes on most liveteam members that got in touch and tried to make them at least a little relevant or personal and i drew a few of my favourite speakers too. The capes were for fun and unplanned. There was nothing i hoped to get out of it, but seeing people enjoying them was so cool. Thanks for being part of the fun and thanks for all making the Web better each and every day.
Get ready to scroll, there’s a lot of them ;)
