I predict over the next few months we are going to start seeing a lot of really bad haircuts.

Today's random musing.

You can tell whether someone has skills vs. douchebaggery by the number of characters in their LinkedIn headline.

Someone with skills will simply put in their current job title ("Director of Sales at Acme Corp.") or the focus of their skill stack ("IT architecture/infrastructure specialist").

Someone whose entire job is douchebaggery will consume far more characters ("Visionary Leader | Driving Positive Change through Engagement | Translating Business Goals to Reality | Strategy Advisor | Global Workforce Leadership")

Who would you rather do business with?

I don't even have a LinkedIn profile. I used to, but it never did me any good.

There s this new school of subdirectives who thinks they job is to use colorful words rather than get stuff done. Specially troublesome when they get in human resources. They will reject candidates that are good and take in people whose CV has lots of garbage in it. "360 vision" and "Emotional intelligence" beat "5 years of experience writing Java microservices" these days.

For most people, LinkedIn is simply an enabling tool that helps you do the kind of networking that you ought to be doing anyway. Unfortunately, its current owners have turned it into a sort of white collar social network.

You know, when I tried to use social networks for promoting my products and myself, I ended up with no followers, but my privacy compromised anyway.


After the second failed attempt, I decided that if I was going to fail, I would fail in my own terms.

I could be the next Larry Bird. All I have to do is grow 17 inches and learn how to play basketball.

You could be the next Larry "Bud" Melman without any changes!

Isn't he dead? The change I would have to make would be to die. I don't plan on dying until March 10, 2023.

 Yes Calvert DeForest did pass away, that is why you could be the NEXT Larry Bud.

 

Why are you planning dying on Chuck Norris birthday?

Is that Uncensored's 25th anniversary?

Actually it will be Uncensored's 35th, not 25th.   It is also my daughter's 18th, the day I become obsolete.

You're already obsolete.
