business card feedback

I'd like to purchase one of those snaggy blogging business cards/cartoons by hugh macleod of gapingvoid.

What is the feedback on this design?
streetcards_card_front
streetcards_card_back

That reads:
Vincent Lauria
- innovator -

    I think it is pretty cool, except I don't think you are allowed to call yourself innovator (that is something that is cool for other people to call you, but kind of cocky to call yourself). There are other words that mean the same thing but you are allowed to deem yourself one, such as technologist.

    Personally, I would use the test of "Do I want people to know this information because it is on my business card?" test. The test is do you want people to know a piece of information through your business card or through interaction with you. My guess is that it is much better for people to know you are an innovator because they talked to you and you were innovative during that conversation, not because they looked at your business card the next day and said, "hey, look that guy is an innovator."

    Also, I would consider a type face change. I like the san serif, but the font should be bigger and/or bold.

    I really think this is a cool thing though, I might get one myself.

    Great comment Chris, good point on group perspective vs. self perspective.
