Will Wright's Awesome Business Cards: Just His Information Stamped on Old Currency

Will-Wright-Business-Card.jpg

Of all Will Wright's charmingly nerdy habits, I think his hilarious business cards might top the list. He simply stamps his contact information on essentially worthless currency from other countries. It's genius. His contact information is in the fuzzed out box up there; the money is from Yugoslavia (a country that no longer exists, obviously) and features Nikola Tesla, perhaps the great electrical inventor of all time.


I received this particular card here at The Atlantic Meets the Pacific conference at the University of California, San Diego, after I interviewed him at CalIT2's beautiful building. I'll have more from that interview, including hints on what The Sims inventor is up to next, after I get a hold of the video of our conversation.
