No Need for Business Cards at Affiliate Summit Central 2012

We’re changing up the name-badges at Affiliate Summit Central 2012, so they’ll have QR codes this time around, instead of the barcodes we’ve had in the past.

We’d love to hear what you think of this after trying it out in Austin, and whether you’d like to also see it in NYC.
