My Rolodex is a black metal model 2254, "patented", from Rolodex Corp of Secaucus NJ. It has a key to lock it, and the front panel is in an attractive wood tone.
I picked it up used - with a full set of cards in it, from some business that I haven't fully identified that sold t-shirts - for $0.50.
Rolodexes are hopelessly obsolete (or so they say), and no one would confuse them for a modern customer relationship management system. On the other hand, when I started down the path of starting to see people from all over the world, the Rolodex was the first thing I used to keep track of people I met, or people I would like to meet.
This blog is a mix of things, but mostly, everything I post here is somewhere in my rolodex - perhaps without quite so much detail, but enough to jog the memory after a quick spin.
Newell Rubbermaid completed its acquisition of the Rolodex business unit of Insilco Corporation (NASDAQ:INSL) in March 1997. This weblog is not affiliated with that company. Rolodex, like Xerox and Kleenex, is one of those trademarks that has slipped into generic use; insist on the genuine article.
