Leaving Cards

surely these should be online by now.
  [vote for,

I left my job yesterday, and was the lucky recipient of a leaving card. Imagine my suprise when, written in the card, I found a rather self referential idea (they know about my 'baking, you see).

The online leaving card allows you to type a few words about the leaver at your own leisure, pick a handwriting style and online pen of choice and think no more about said individual.

The receiver is amazed when they recieve a nicely printed out version of everyone's thoughts, and gob smacked at how they even managed to get Jimmy from accounts to write a note, even though he's on holiday in Lima.

The ideal solution for people who work with geographically dispersed teams, it's also ideal evidence (in a linkedin stylee) to present to your new employeer.

"look, the CEO said how much fun I'd been to work with, and how I simply must keep in touch".

       Given the current trend in leaving emails (sent by leaver and responded to by those who could give a rat's ass), is this really necessary?

       current trend ? what does such an email consist of ? have I unwittingly partaken in some sort on online faux pas by not sending one?

       "It's been a pleasure working with you, but it's time for me to move on..." and so on. Main point is to make sure everyone on the company email server has your (new) telephone number and email address after you've left.
