The 'Filofax Nod' ?
It's a silent acknowledgement from another Filofax user you come across in your daily commute or in a coffee shop or in the library or anywhere else for that matter. An acknowledgement of 'I see you are a Filofax user too' No words are required, just that small motion of the head, communicates to the other person the acknowledgement of the sight of their Filofax....
I came across this in a blog post at the weekend from our friend MacPsych (Hi Richard!) Of course the chances of seeing another Filofax on your travels will depend on where you live.
When Alison (author of Inceptio!) first had her new Mini in 2002, other new Mini owners would often flash their lights at you as they passed, a 'Mini nod' an appreciation of 'Hi I see you have a cool car too' I think the practice has died out a bit now because the Mini is so popular on the roads.. and Alison would love another!
I bet iPhone users don't have a nod when they see another iPhone user... ah see paper has something over digital in more ways than you think!
