Fred posts today on “the big Rolodex.” (Interesting how the brand name sticks around even when the products themselves don’t.)
Spent a bit of time recently myself (following Brad’s lead, actually) migrating things to Plaxo and trying to de-dupe an Outlook address book that’s been mangled by years of trying to synch with Palms, my phone’s Symbian OS, Yahoo! Mail, etc. It’s scary.
Anyway, Fred has some interesting thoughts, which echo my own, about the quality of contacts, the recency of contacts, etc. It’s been a really interesting experience to shift coasts recently and find that “local” contacts are now far away, and “distant” contacts are now right around the corner.
