foursquare badge: Check-in & Waffles
Sorry Folks… you won’t be able to get your hands on this badge because it is headed to the Unused section of our foursquare badge list.
This badge was recently used as part of foursquare’s party invitation for the foursquare SF engineering open house. The event was held on Thursday 7/28/2011. The event was invite-only for engineers and was held in the new SoMA, San Francisco office. Although this badge was never activated with an official name, due to the event it was used for… we are just going to stick with the Check-in & Waffles badge.
In an announcement foursquare’s Morgan Missen said, “We’re calling it Check-in & Waffles, and just like it sounds, we’ll be serving up drinks, snack-sized tech talks, and the finest mobile dough-based comestibles to satisfy your tummy, brain and curiosity.” Morgan also tweeted a photo of the waffle truck announcing, “Check-in & Waffles at #4sqSF has begun, welcome engineers!”
We are very happy for Morgan and all the employees over at foursquare SF. For all you geeks out there, check out the information below. Ben Lee gave a presentation/talk at the event covering the data and explore recommendation engine.
