Over at DesignTAXI, a small collection of "celebrity" business cards including the likes of Einstein, Freud, Warhol, and, er, Zuckerberg. (via NextDraft)
Walt Disney’s address is listed as 3241 Troost, which is sadly a vacant lot in Kansas City. It must not’ve been very special.
I used to live about ten blocks from there. It’s not a very special area.
I don’t know if the addressing has changed in the interim, but the building that was once home to Laugh-O-Gram Studio is still there, just not in great condition. It’s in the middle of a (what seems to be an unending) restoration process, with the NPO “Thank You, Walt Disney” spearheading it.
Come to think of it, since it is one block east of Troost on 31st Street, not sure why it lists that address. Maybe it was a temporary residence, who knows.

Apparently Eric Schmidt’s doctorate is in neither spellology nor proofreadonomy.
I’ve always wanted to be a Chariman.
One of my vendors once gave me a large stack of high-end note cards, complete with envelopes, that unfortunately purported to be from the desk of a “Donald Peterson.” They’re still here on my desk. They’re so swanky, I can’t bring myself to throw them away. Neither can I bring myself to use them.
Maybe Schmidt is a thrifty dude. Or didn’t bother checking them when the shipment arrived.
I think Lincoln’s is the best one here!
Freud got roached!
If this were the Dating Game, I’d pick Larry Page. There’s a conspicuous absence of drama queen in his card.
Look at that subtle off-brown coloring. The tasteful triangularity of it. Oh my God, it even has a watermark!
