JOBSEARCH: LINKEDIN is slow

Wednesday, January 31, 2007

It’s essential, but slow.

This is a great source and overview

Also, run the 40 minute virtual rolodex / LinkedIn presentation

It is very recruiter centric but the seeker needs to know what the hunter is doing so that you can be “sought”.


XPfails – luggable – Slow Down

Luggable has just slowed to a crawl. Maybe a reboot will clear it?


INTERESTING: Why do we check back on old contacts?

Wednesday, January 31, 2007

WRITTEN TO A COLLEAGUE WHO WAS ASKING WHY HE INTERESTED IN OLD STUFF:

Yes, it’s important to keep in touch. Well, the reason is probably closure. I’m active in my high school and college alumni hobby. There comes a time later in life where we regret all the choices. Some people want to say FU to some people. Others want to say ThankYou, MissYou, or GoodbyeYou. It’s hard to understand. Probably some sort of biological clock wanting to tie up loose ends. You want to compare what you’ve done with others. If for no other reason than to say “I done good”, “gooder”, or “worse”.


LIBERTY: The bill for Iraq is understated AND hidden!

Inflation and War Finance
by Ron Paul

***Begin Quote***

If every American taxpayer had to submit an extra five or ten thousand dollars to the IRS this April to pay for the war, I’m quite certain it would end very quickly. The problem is that government finances war by borrowing and printing money, rather than presenting a bill directly in the form of higher taxes. When the costs are obscured, the question of whether any war is worth it becomes distorted.

***End Quote***

Eventually the chickens will come home to roost.

It will be a sad day when the bill comes. It will come in several forms — rampant inflation, economic depression, disgruntled vets, the wounded, world outrage, and the hidden costs.

We can see and predict the “visible costs”, but what about Bassat’s hidden ones. What were the dead supposed to do? What about the generations they would have spawned? What about the heartache of all those left behind?

Man that is one ugly chicken coming home to poop!


WRITING: New title

“The Angst … of the unknown path”

in the din of the crowd, one only has to look to see the lonelyness, the emptiness, the mindlessness of the individuals in the crowd. They need the crowd, the din, the purposelessness activity to hide the truth from themselves. As if the quiet world would scream so loud that it would frighten them.


JOBSEARCH: Monetizing “help”

Tuesday, January 30, 2007

It is interesting the “participation web”. First found on Amazon, they harnessed their users into an unpaid workforce. So, of all the things I do for free, should I monetize some or all of them. Turn it from a “labor of love” into some “retirement money” for my old age? Recruiters are doing this on the social networking sites. Why can’t we all?
