Are business cards a thing of the past? As I was throwing away 50 or so old business cards, I realized I never look at them. If I want to contact someone, I email them. If I need to call them, I run a quick search in my email client and get their phone number. I haven’t touched my fancy-pants rolodex in years and honestly it’s probably the next thing to go from the top of my desk. How long before business cards are gone completely? When will they join 8-tracks, vinyl, CD’s, zip drives, phone books and newspapers for that long ride off into the sunset of irrelevancy? What will take their place?
