I'm packing tonight for a business trip, and have had a little epiphany.  The past couple of trips I have "forgotten" to bring business cards.  Now I get to admit that I just choose not to use them.  "Making it" takes various different forms, but one of them is getting to the point where everybody knows who you are.  There's probably a little passive agressive note in taking someone else's card so you'll remember their name, and doing nothing in return.  It's possible that I'm a bad person.

I have also stopped wearing name badges at conferences.  I feel a little sorry for the student volunteer at the last one who very correctly tried to bar me from the session room.
