I’m jettisoning six years of business cards. So many people I met once and never saw again.
Back in the push era, I scanned cards and maintained a mailing list. Now that I’m into pull, I figure people will find me if they need me. No reason to bug them with spam.
Thumbing through the cards reminded me of the many cool people I’ve been privileged to learn from.
Cards are so handy at the time, especially if you jot down notes on the reverse side. I bet cards are the last dead-tree artifacts to disappear from the business scene.
