How many times have you been at an event or a meeting, and either forgot to bring business cards, or ran out, and now you need one ASAP? It happens to me constantly, and now, rather than having to carry an extra 100 with me to an event every day, I’m pretty psyched about Dropcard (thanks Lifehacker).
Just head over to the site, and set up an account with your contact info. The next time you meet someone and don’t have a card handy, just send an SMS message to 41411 with the text “drop firstname.lastname@example.org”, obviously replacing the “email@example.com” with the correct address, and no quotes. About a minute later, their email will happily light up with a message from you containing all the contact info you share on Dropcard.
If you have an iPhone or iPod Touch, you can go to the same url (mydropcard.com), log in, and get a simple web interface for sending the cards.
Finally, a cure for the fact that I can remember to bring along DVI-VGA adapters, tons of power chargers and a gazillion batteries in my bag, but cannot remember to bring a few dozen of those sexy Moo cards I had printed up.
