This dose of selling out was beneficial in many ways. First, by joining LinkedIn, I could see more profile information of people I was curious about. This greatly assisted some Errata research to start. In the last year or so, I turned my profile into a ‘real’ one. One caveat; I only list hobby experience on the profile. CFP review, my work on attrition.org, my work for OSF including OSVDB, etc. With a ‘real’ profile, but not my real name, I was also curious who would link to me. Over time, many have, and most have had fun endorsing me for creative things. All in all, I sold out right on this one.
