KiKi L'Italien in particular - got here a LONG time before me, but I finally got my first Poken! That's him ---->
One of the exhibitors at this fall's SHSMD conference sponsored them - which was a genius move on their part, since EVERYONE wanted one and so they got EVERYONE's information - and then we all had a blast with them during the event.
Pokens, for those who aren't already in the know, are little devices that allow you to exchange business card information electronically, then download that information into your address book via USB port.
The only downside? They aren't that widely used yet. But they were fantastic as a conference giveaway, because it was a captive audience.
