It was just a few short years ago that I remember sitting in the office of Sequoia Capital with my business partner, pitching Michael Moritz about our new crowd-sourced online greeting card business. By that time I’d had my fair share of visits to Sand Hill Road and had witnessed reactions from VCs ranging from unbridled enthusiasm to polite boredom.

Full Circle! Right in time for the 2011 Holiday Season, perhaps Greeting Cards are finally having their day in the Silicon Valley spotlight. Apple’s recent announcement about its new Cards app for iOS5 has stimulated much discussion about an industry that has been rather resistant to digitization over the past ten years.

And HTC did it with its new HTC ChaCaha and HTC Salsa. Annaunced at Mobile Word Congres 2011 in Barcelona, both smartphones feature a dedicated Facebook button for one-touch access to the Facebook.

I found a gadget store with Facebook logo located in the World Trade Center in Surabaya, Indonesia. I don’t know whether the store has a relationship with Facebook or not. And I don’t know whether Mark Zuckerberg knows about it or not, but I don’t think so. This uncreative store just reminds me to the fake Engadget store found in the Midvalley Megamall in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. What do you think?
