Mixed in with the mass is the occational business card. For some of the cards, I can remember the person who gave me their card and the context of the meeting. Such cards are much more likely to go into my contacts database.
And a number of the cards are from "social media experts" and look a lot like the "I hate your email signature" part of The Oatmeal: If you do this in an email. And I have zero mental impression of whoever gave them to me. Which is odd, since I am pretty sure that I was there when they were given to me.
