The above barcode is a 2D version called a QR code, invented and popular in Japan.
This particular code contains my business card contact info, which I generated at http://zxing.appspot.com/generator/
Next, I'm printing up some business cards with this on the back (I heard that uprinting.com was giving away 1,000 free cards...we'll see). Many of the newer mobile phones have a reader so you can scan a card and quickly add it to your contact database. I just downloaded this one to try it out: http://www.beetagg.com/
Anything to minimize carpal tunnel. I already switched to left-handed mousing to ease the wear-and-tear on my right.
