    Does anyone use business cards these days?

    I'm lucky enough to get to attend my first RTC in a couple of weeks. With all the tech savvy Revit users in attendance I'm wondering do most people share info with smartphones these days? Linkedin? Twitter? What's most popular?

    At events with a hashtag certainly, or follow trending groups like #ukbimcrew or other attendees. I don't ever take cards anywhere anymore.

    I'll ask for someone's contact info as I would of a new friend, or follow up subsequently via LinkedIn, or if they're very personable a phonecall or meet.

    I now like to go to industry events as "me", having done the whole stimulating but ultimately shallow, and unfulling, fronting of a very public-facing branded type architectural practice. I now just go as myself, and leave work, and the "work persona" exactly there, at work.

    I find it makes the event feel less forced - but many who will have met me at these kind of shows would contest I'm just a cynical mardy sulk anyway.

      The RTC application has a QR code reader that you can use to scan another attendees QR code, on the badges. This offers up however much information each person has decided to allow the app to share/retrieve.

      Say hi in Schaumburg, see you there!

        I always bring some and tend to collect a few. My only real issue with them is getting the information from the card to my PC. I don't want work related stuff in my phone if I can help it so I tend to avoid card scanning apps and by the time I get back to the office I forget to manually add the info in...

              I bring business cards. Contrary to popular misconception because of our careers, im not a tech zealot.
