Discovered this little gem on Mashable.com, I’m adding it to my game immediately.
Contxts are cool text message “business cards” that anyone with a cell phone can access. You set up an account, chose a handle, fill out your contact info, and start giving folks (re: chicks) your username. When someone sends a text with your username to 50500, they get back a text that contains the info you punched into your Contxt account. Typical info would include name, phone number, email, Twitter ID, Facebook ID, IM name, etc etc. You get 140 characters to play with, so really you can put anything in there. Simple and easy.
This way you either ditch the business cards entirely or supplement with Contxts.
Also, it’s totally free. Nice.

Peeps, I hope everyone had a lovely holiday weekend. I sure did. It’s a new week, so that means the Thought Leader Interview Series continues. Today we’re featuring one of the smartest guys in pickup, The Asian Rake, who bequeathed us one of the most thoughtful and provocative interviews to date. Be sure to check out his excellent blog, Dr. Asian Rake, and also his website, The Power of Being Asian. Holy cow, this stuff is awesome. Feel free to debate his points in the comments.
“As women continue to gain ground in the professional workforce, especially in socially conservative countries, the male provider mindset will drop away, not entirely, but considerably. In some countries, this might take 40 or 50 years instead of 10 or 20. But it’s bound to happen. When it does, society will have to come to grips with the fact that women want sexual satisfaction as much as men do and that many formal courtship patterns are unnecessary and even irrational.”

This is part 2 in a series of interviews with dating coaches and social artists. This is based on my original post, 7 Thought Leaders in the Dating and Pickup Industry.
This interview is with 30, a professional life and dating coach, and author of The Reality Method blog.
“I hope the world in 20 years is more filled with loving intention, and there is less of a gender war, less ego-based striving, and more loving acceptance for everyone involved. But I think that’s up to us” –30
