I'm on the verge of another kind of data overload. I have a stack over an inch thick of business cards and personal cards that I have not entered into my Address Book app. And only some of them did I write on the card the context of "where did I meet this person? what were we talking about? why were they interesting?"
And just blindly entering them is not the single one-time-cost in time that it used to be.
Social networking goo is still pretty primitive, and so has the following problem: when I enter someone into AddressBook.app, it syncs to Google Contacts, and then my various social-network-enabled sites start picking it up, recommending that I "friend" them, and add their activity feed to the one I read.
On the other hand, I remember that at least a handful of the people represented in this stack of cards are really interesting people.
