Every once in a while, I find a clever applet that I’d like to share.  This one is the “MCP Virtual Business Card”.

www.MCPvirtualBusinessCard.com

It uses your LiveID and then allows you to do all of the normal business card contact info, as well as easy links for social networking.  But what I thought was clever was how it easily allows MCP’s to post the list of their certifications, including the optional ability to link your entire certification transcript if you want to.

Here is mine:

You can also click on the “Learn More” button to see more about the certifications, as well as a bio.  This is a really nice touch for those that are job shopping (which I am not).

As far as the certifications go (since you can see them), I must admit that mine are not current.  My first certification exams in 1995 were:

  • Windows 3.1
  • Windows NT 3.51
  • SMS 1.0

That doesn’t include a Master CNE for NetWare 2.x thru 5.x, but now I am just dating myself.  But hey, for those that are testing on the latest certifications (and I am intending to do this for WS08R2, as well as my own System Center products), this card is a cool little gadget.

Thanks for reading
