Spanish telecom extraordinaire and all around hero Ramiro Pareja Veredas has the coolest business cards ever. Printed onto a card, with a male USB interface…if you have the pleasure of getting one of these from ol’ Ramiro, you can plug it into your computer and see his HTML resume, etc.
seems a touch wide
Per Ramiro himself:
Clearly, it is not the cheaper business card in the world (about 5 euros/piece for a small batch order), but it is a (relatively) small price for having a card in your pocket that has more CPU power than the computer that led the man to the moon.
I wonder if Ramiro knows about the internet…it seems like his HTML resume could easily be placed on that thing. I’m not much of a computer guy, though…I could be wrong.
+1 moon reference
-1 I’d still throw it directly in the trash, as I do with all other business cards I procure.
Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform…and it is awesome. I went for the Arduino Duemilanove, packaged nicely with some LEDs, resisters, leads, and solderless breadboard. Did I mention this bad-boy employs USB connectivity? Prototyping, FTW!
Next step: get this sucker talking to Ubuntu on my Mini 9.
Step after that: turn on some LEDs
Step even after that: MF-ing robot
