"Google Me" Business Card - If you've got it, flaunt it?

A concept from designer Ji Lee, this business card contains no information but the owner's name - and the instruction to Google it. Some of the shortcomings of such a card are mentioned by writers and commenters on geeksugar (it might imply an actual affiliation with Google) and Gizmodo (it links to your entire uncensored past, and is useless for people who share names with celebrities). But what this card is really about is flaunting it if you've got it - and the "it" in this case is the #1 search result for your name. It's definitely a badge of honor, of sorts, in a 'net-based world, and this card is simply a way to show it off. And, ahem, yes, I just checked, and I still have mine - but only for "Dave Gustafson," not "David Gustafson." Maybe I should get some of these cards while I can...

I loved Ji Lee's idea so much, that it inspired me to partner with my fathers printing business and create CrackCard.com. CrackCards first months card is a very similar Google Me Card. http://crackcard.com/google-me-card.html

Great idea. I think business Cards are still as important as ever for anyone in business.
