Today’s “Daily Bizcard” design, “Life Is Too Short”, goes to Tim O’Reilly, CEO of O’Reilly Media.
What’s there to say about Tim that hasn’t been said already? He’s one one of our great Internet and technology visionaries. I was fortunate to meet him a few months ago at Supernova in San Francisco. A really charming, well-mannered guy in real life.
The cartoon above was DIRECTLY inspired by a personal mantra of Tim’s, “Work On Stuff That Matters”. And of course, it’s the fact that we’re mortal (and life is short) that gives Tim’s mantra its sense of urgency. If we lived forever, we’d be more inclined to just sit on our butts all day long. That was my thinking behind it, anyway. The cartoon was also the first one I sent out in my daily newsletter, back in January. You can also buy the print here etc.

[Tim, please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with your shipping address and the details you want on the back of the bizcard, and I’ll send a free box of 100 to you. Thanks!]
