I’ve been thinking about getting new cards for Dear Author. When I go to conferences, people are always asking for my business card and the ones I have, I don’t really love. I read this article about how business cards suck and everyone is spending outrageous amounts of money in attempting to get their card to be noticed. In this day and age, why not use electronic services. I particularly like Dropcard which allows me to email someone my information that can be automatically saved to the user’s address book or TextID which allows me to text my information to a user. I’m interested in hearing whether in a regular business context, if this is an appealing way to obtain a person’s contact information.
