I realized after the fact that I should have emphasized the general offline word-of-mouth, networking, customer service, keeping clients and friends happy, etc, because in certain industries, that can be infinitely more valuable than blogging and whatnot. Nonetheless, the kernel of the idea is that there is so much more to landing that interview, client, etc than the slacker form of advertising oneself: resumes, business cards, and "please hire me" emails.<br><br>Thanks for commenting, Marcus.

There are so many trends that are changing the way we do <i>anything</i> that it's almost impossible to grasp each cultural shift. But your points here regarding where our individual branding/networking focus are spot on. Keep up the excellent work.

I would definitely agree that the day is coming, where (as David said on his blog) the resume will be more of a formality like a business card. It'll still be valuable for reminding people of you, as a leave behind, etc, but it won't get anyone's. It's up to reputation manage, networking, blogging, word of mouth, etc to draw opportunities to you and make you more memorable. Thanks, Mark.
