Business Cards: Kiss 'em Goodbye

latimes.com: Ubiquitous as pinstripes, the 2-by-3.5-inch pieces of card stock have long been a staple in executive briefcases. Exchanging cards helps to break the ice and provides a quick reference for forgotten names.

But to many young and Web-savvy people who are accustomed to connecting digitally, the cards are irrelevant, wasteful — and just plain lame.

  1. Well, yes, but ... I won't part with the artist "business" cards I've picked up at SF convention art shows/exhibits over the years. Many are great works of art in themselves!

  2. I like 'em, keep and refer to them, am sorry if this yet another casualty of the "digital revolution".

  3. If I don't need one that I have I use it as a bookmark.

    This theme is repeated every couple of weeks. In the time it takes to exchange digital info, you can pass business cards to a dozen people.

    Also, it's hard to leave digital info sitting on a table at a trade show.
