Networking: Back to the future

I received a  short holdiay card from an 18 year old friend and fellow entrepreneur - Ben Casnocha. He's a great guy -- who I've met once and established an email and blog friendship.  The card was a small but very thoughtful (and instructive) gesture. The card reminded me how powerful a simple act of sending a hand written note can be in this digital age -- these simple gestures are much more effective than an email.  I was touched that he cared enough to send me a card.  I wasn't sure I was going to send my holiday cards out this year because I'm in the midst of a move to our remodelled house. Now, I know that I have to send the cards -- thanks for the reminder Ben. My friends thank you too.
