Great thread. I've got a few science-y ones.

Fighting entropy since [1985] (or whatever your year of birth is)
2 standard deviations above the mean
Calories in, calories out
Somewhere in the middle of the food chain
Efficiency connoisseur
Product of billions of years of evolution
Homo sapien
Creator of entropy
Keystone species
CO2 source

Those are terrific!

Thanks. Unfortunately I would probably never give these cards out even though some of the ideas on here are brilliant.

It makes me laugh that someone would be looking for this silly thread.

Here's some ideas off the top of my head (haven't reread this thread in a long time, but did a quick thread search, only had one duplicate I removed, and two similar ones separated below):
International Man of Mystery
Connoisseur
Fast and Furious
Minion
Explorer
Salt to Taste
Whimsical
Do Not Ingest
Lost: One Business Card.  Reward if Found.


Also these were similar to others previously posted, but slightly different so I separated them out down here:
Dry Clean Only
If Found, Please Call ____ (put phone number)

Yours should be "Cloud Capturer" or something like that. 

Oh wait, that might be an actual legitimate business card.  ;)

I've enjoyed reading this thread, but in a more serious vein I actually find it useful to have "Personal Cards" (vs Business Cards -- as I still have a real business).  My personal cards have my non-work email, phone number, and street address.  I find these useful at meetups, group bike rides, etc.  When I want to engage with someone I've met for future activities, it's an easy way to break the ice without imposing any commitments on either side by handing them a personal card with my contact info.

It also helps someone remember your name and where they met you.  If they're interested in getting in touch again, they'll have a handy physical reference.  I don't print a title as I'm trying to avoid any snark or innuendo.

Just received a personal card from someone, it had name, email, and cell phone, and that's it, but it seemed to me it would be great to have another line:
We were discussing [blank to fill in]

I just scribble something on the back of my cards, e.g. "Carpool to NE Georgia in September."
