Judging by some very convincing tweets, it looks like PAX Passes are on their way. Post here when you get yours. Feel free to include a very excited picture for our amusement.

Evidence: look at this http://tweetphoto.com/13475483
Not mine, but proof they are out there.

    Yep, just got mine. Came with a CharlieCard, which appears to be a card you can load money onto for Boston public transit.

    Yeah, a charliecard works on all public transit, and you get a discounted cost per trip if you use one.

    Any international chaps reading this thread should be aware that they will not be getting their passes in the post. At least that's what I've been lead to believe. Oh and for you Media pass people (me included) move along, nothing to see here....

    As a sign off, I kind of like the PAX East logo on the badges, very slick.

    This is the first time in three years that I have not been among the very first to receive my badges.
    Now I know how it feels to be on the other side of the fence.



    The badge fence.



    Only the fence is not made of badges.



    The fence simply separates those that have badges from those that do not.



    I like to think that the badge fence is made out recycled milk cartons and other plastic.



    I like those fences.



    They are clean, white and plasticy.

    Got mine at my house yesterday as well, but I don't actually get to have it in my hands until next week.

    I believe there was an option for international fedex on the badges.

    I chose will call :( Kropotkin, this means that your forum badge will be the first thing in my hand PAX-y.
    Apart from the plane tickets. :D

    there was, for an extra cost of course. as it turns out the extra money may have been worth it in the value/convenience of the Charlie card. something to remember when booking for PAXEast 11.

    Great to hear the badges are reaching their respective recipients. Anyone in Canada received their badge yet?

    Now these points of data make a beautiful line,
    And we're out of beta, we're releasing on time.

    everyone keep in mind that the charlie cards probably aren't loaded with any value yet, it is easier to start off with one to save money though, train is 1.70 a ride with charliecard, 2$ with paper ticket.

    I have a monthly pass so itll be easy for me :)

    Got my badge up here in Canada...

    There seems to be a strange thing though. I ordered a 3-Day pass but I got passes that say Friday on them?
    Do we just get a pass for each day?

    No, they should be red badges that say Three Day on them.

    I wouldn't panic though, you've got plenty of time to get it straightened out. Chances are they'll have you show up at will-call and they'll just give you a three-day badge then.
