Profile - Hello My Name Is Scott

It all started about two years ago, when Scott Ginsberg of Portland, Oregon attended a convention where he had to wear a nametag. Afterwards, he headed off to hang out with some friends and decided to leave the nametag on for fun - and it hasn't left his side (or chest, rather,) since. To date, Scott has used over 1731 nametags in his quest to make the world a friendlier place. Just how is he planning on doing that? Read on to find out!

The Nametag Theory

Originally, Scott Ginsberg was just out to have some fun with his nametag wearing, but soon it became much more. It became a quest to change the way people interact with one another. Scott thinks people have lost the ability for simple interaction with one another (like greeting one another in the street.) So, his theory is that with his nametag, he makes himself more approachable and easier to talk to. And so far the theory seems to be working.

Where The Nametag Has Taken Him

How can making yourself easier to approach change the way you live? For Scott Ginsberg, he's met many people because of his nametag. Whether they're people pointing out that he's forgot to take his nametag off or peeps who think it's cool to try and beat him up cuz of his nametag, Scott's met 'em all. "One time this dude came up to me and yelled, 'Scott! What's up!' and gave me a huge hug and was giving me high fives and stuff. That was pretty funny," Scott says of one of his most memorable, nametag encounters.

How Do You Make The World Friendlier?

While Scott doesn't recommend that everyone go out and slap on a nametag, he does think that everyone can make a difference. "I think you should be nice to everyone because that's the way you would want to be treated."

Is There An End In Sight?

For a project that just started out as something fun to do, Scott Ginsberg doesn't plan to ditch his humanitarian efforts anytime soon. "Initially I only wanted to have fun. But now, I just want to change the world. I mean, CONTINUE to change the world. The only end in sight is my own death, which at the rate I am going, may be sooner than I want if these random dudes keep picking fights with me."
