Virtualise your business card?

Are you a Microsoft Certified Professional?  If so, not only do you have access to the same great Hyper-V and virtualisation goodness that everyone else has access to, but you can also go one step further, and virtualise your business card!  Before you say, ‘what is he talking about (again)’, this came to me in the latest MCP newsletter – maybe it was a slow-news month!

What is a Virtual Business Card? (VBC – there had to be an acronym!)

Well, in a nutshell, Virtual Business Cards can be used to show off your expertise, knowledge, and achievements, creatively, securely, and interactively. You can brand yourself and let everyone know what credentials you hold by using them on the Web or in your email signature.

Erwin’s got all the details about how you go through the process, but why would you want to?

  • It's the best way to reliably share and prove your credentials with two ways to securely link your MCP transcript.
  • It is a creative and vibrant way to show off your credentials.
  • Establish yourself as a brand

If you’re up for it, you can head over here, and make your own VBC, and before you know it, you’ll have something like this, in HTML:

Or, an even more interactive one in JavaScript, with details of your transcript on mouse over and everything! (I need to get out more.)

I can almost hear the oooooh’s and ahhhh’s when you mouse over the JavaScript one :-)

Forget Web 2.0.  This is Business Card 2.0.
