I had a flashback to my original web development days a bit earlier. I remember using these little web badges on my site, but couldn’t remember what the hell they were called. After a solid 15 minutes of web searching, I finally found it. They were called Antipixel Badges! You can still see them kicking around as HTML & CSS validation tags in a lot of places.
If anyone can enlighten me about the name I’d love to hear it. My guess is a user named Antipixel actually started making them this way and it caught on. That’d be a decent internet legacy if you ask me.
