The Blog, having a Blog is increasingly important way of identifying yourself as a thought leader and thought leaders are the top of the food chain in the world of capital 'C' consulting.

You will want to review and make professional comment on the latest issues, government policy, trends, new technologies in your particular area of Information Technology. Above all you will want to make it interesting to a follower, attach Youtube video links, refer to websites and maybe add a little 'geek' humour to show you are true blue.

In line with our discussion of personal profiles on the Internet we found the website123people.com. This may be a new breed of search engine allowing the user to search the web and browse a person's Internet presence. Scouring many social networking sites as well as web pages the result is a mash up of personal information such as their Picture, published Email Addresses, listed Telephone Numbers, any associated Weblinks (are you a member of any social or sports club that publishes your name), any associated Blogs, any associated Video content including Youtube and any published Documents which identify you.
