Business Card Scanner software

From: John Aldrich 
Anyone know of any software that will work under linux to import 
business cards scans into contacts? Is there anything necessary, or do 
these things just create vcards that one can import into your email 
client? I have only used one before and that integrated into Outlook, 
semi-automatically adding contacts to your Outlook address book. IIRC, 
there was a step or two between scanning and them showing up in your 
address book, but it's been a long time since I used one.

Since I've started exchanging business cards with models and 
photographers, I've decided it would be good to have a database of 
contacts and not just a bunch of loose business cards!
