Want to meet interesting but don’t want to have to make the first
move? Use the back of your laptop to get people to talk to you. ;)
Stickers are a great way to do that. My laptop reads “The geek shall
inherit the earth.” I can’t count the smiles, chuckles, and
conversations I’ve gotten out of it—and all I have to do is open my
laptop! It helps that I have an eyecatching ridiculously small laptop,
of course, but this technique would work even for regular laptops.
LapLooks goes one better. They sell a
frame that attaches to your laptop and allows you to slip in a photo.
I don’t think I’ll ever find something in my size, but maybe I can
cobble something together with duct tape. Actually, you know what this
reminds me of? Those little reusable drawing pads. I could so totally
rig up a better system.
I’m going to have that up and running before BarCampEarthToronto this Saturday, for sure. I have *just* enough space for a 3×5 index card and part of a business card. So: laminate-style cover, or clear plastic and duct tape? ;)
Which reminds me, I need to get business cards printed. Another thing
to take care of tomorrow. =) Good stuff.
I’m so tempted to sell advertising space on my laptop. ;) After all, Stowe Boyd sold his T-shirt rights…
