ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
This is the business card of game designer Will Wright, interviewed for The Atlantic by Alexis Madrigal.
Naturally, the country that minted the note no longer exists.
That OOoooozes cool.
Very cool card. I love Will Wright for a lot of reasons… His politics not being one of them. McCain? Really? Will?
Politics notwithstanding, the fact that it is Nikola Tesla’s image on that note lends a bit more ‘geek cred’ to Will Wright, I think.
Well, despite Spore and the fact that The Sims turned into a game geared towards 13 year old girls, it’s hard to have more “geek cred” than Will Wright – even if he had never done anything after the first couple Sim City games (and some of the early Sim games were incredibly more geeky than Sim City).
i think i still have a couple of those somwhere in the attic.
Anyone who puts the god of electricity on their money… er… businesscard is definitely somebody worth having around.
In fact, the state exists, Serbia is legal successor of the state that issued the money
Why do they have his information blurred out on the photo? Isn’t the purpose of his business card to make it easier to find?
I wonder how much obsolete currency have that big of a white space on it.

I'm not sure I have any comment for this, other than to say how pleased I am that puns work just as well in math.
