Low hanging fruit
This is the first stop for many link building campaigns. It's the logical starting place for a Lazy SEO Link Building Strategy. Wake up under a tree, reach for a fruit, then go back to sleep, right?
Does it get any lazier than this? DMOZ, Yahoo, BOTW.ORG. Stop. You might pull a finger muscle. Take a nap. Move on to next targets when you wake.
Blog directories, top resources lists, lists of useful sites. Stop. Have lunch. Take another nap. Wake up. Call it a day.

call all your friends who have sites. Ask for a link.
of course the obvious, spend a day writing (find something that went viral and redo it at the least).

Create something scrape-worthy with your links embeded.
If a site has suitably high traffic create a "link to us" page.
When you add an outbound link send the site owner an email. Try not to make it look like a 90's link request.
I now ask for a reference to my site as opposed to a link.

Set up some ordinary ad campaigns to drive traffic from PPC, banner ads, etc..
As people start seeing your content, once in a while someone will link to it without being asked.

Oh buckworks, that's a good one to play around with.
Bloggers looking for other bloggers to link to will find your site that way. Even better if the landing page is a list of the top blogs. Bait. :P

FWIW: In my experience and with my kind of sites it would take ten or twenty thousand visitors to score a free, do-follow organic link "from the wild".
So, it's not worth running ads at a loss, but running some campaigns at break-even to drive traffic can augment other link-building efforts.
