“here’s my URL, date me”

February 8, 2008

what ever happened to the times when you meet someone and write their phone number somewhere on your person? through the day the ink gets smudgy, but sure enough – you’ve got digits. presumably, you call and talk to that person, get to know them better… blah blah blah.

surely i am no stranger to technology, though not a wiz by any means. nor am i old enough to say, “back in the day…”. but in the last few weeks, rather than a traditional exchange of business cards, phone numbers, or even email addresses, i’ve been given websites addresses. *oh, how personal* granted, these sites are also used for business purposes. but what am i supposed to do with a dude’s biography that’s been purposefully composed to promote, say their boxing showmanship, next rapping event, recent marketing project, or even catering menu specialities?!

sure, it’s probably a little like online dating profiles in regards to selling yourself to a prospect… but one would think those profiles are a little more personal and directed? what’s next, and online calendar and application to schedule a date?

though i hope this isn’t a growing trend, it would be nice if website pick-ups included their annual reports online!
