I am an IBMer

It's always exciting for me when I get business cards, I always have to show them to everyone I know.
Like "Hey look! I really do work for this company!" *glowing*
I think partly, its a sign of trust. Because once my name is associated with the company's name, I'm an extension of their reputation. 
I think being in IT, since you often aren't customer facing... there isn't usually much "need" for business cards, and quite frankly you're replaceable.  So getting business cards is kind of a big deal, like the company thinks you're going to be around long enough to be worth getting them for.
