Networking for Geeks: Advertise with your laptop!

UPDATE: See http://sachachua.com/advertise-on-my-laptop.html

The geek shall inherit the earth

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 3x5 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...
