In October of 2006, I found myself rewriting my CV for what felt like the thousandth time, emphasising yet another angle on my project-management/facilitating-collaboration/technology-for-business-goals career. CVs are quite restrictive in their format and content, and I was annoyed that I had to limit my communication with prospective employers to a discrete snapshot of my accomplishments when I’d prefer to include more of how I think and what interests me.
The solution came with a problem that was nagging at me: Blogs were clearly on the rise, but why on earth would anybody bother to broadcast their thoughts regularly? What normal day-to-day behaviour does this model? How do I fit this into my own life? Why should I bother? I sought out many blogging friends and colleagues for their perspectives. As the discussions built, I realised something about myself.
