Business Card

By Edward Nawotka

Honestly, I find nothing more annoying than after a good conversation with someone to discover that I’m not carrying any business cards. They’re so small, so essential…and so, irrelevant?

Perhaps it’s true that in this age of paperless email and Twitter it’s just as easy to send someone a text or SMS with your information. Sure, but that’s kind of boring, isn’t it?

Plus, who these days can even get all their relevant contact information – from Facebook Id to Skype number – on a single business card? I know I can’t.

Why not have an image of your actual card – you know, the one you paid someone to design – sent to someone’ electronically? Or better yet, how about roving a conference with a dongle that will automatically link up with another person’s dongle (now get your mind out of the gutter) and exchange, errr, information?

Someone is always thinking of a better way and has compiled a good list of options for getting rid of those pesky, paper business cards.
