Thanks for the thorough answer, I appreciate it!

When I click on the link for IEEE Explore, I hit a pay wall. I'd certainly appreciate the opportunity to read it and I think others might be too. If you don't want to share it here, I can PM my e-mail.

I do hope that more accountability will be present in future iterations of government, at the very least. It also occurs to me that a universal increase in accountability might also be desirable. I don't like my privacy being invaded any more than anyone else, or being observed by management, but if everyone could see what everyone else is doing in the workplace it might be pretty useful. Heh, at the very least, I think it would change the hiring process and supplant the need for the self-reported resume or CV.

Found an open access PDF version.

For a lot of people I think this is already happening. Your Twitter/blog/personal website etc. all function in essence like a C.V. or resume. This isn't just theoretical for me - both of my current jobs were acquired by sending my website/blog/twitter.

All emerging jobs on the Internet should function in this way. Other common features of emergent jobs include less hierarchy and increased individual autonomy (in regards to both the way you spend your time and where you have to be geographically).

Cool. Thanks again!

Yeah, I that's certainly true. I was thinking of something maybe less self-reported. Employers are increasingly looking for real-life experience in things like leadership or problem solving and rely on applicants to sell themselves in person and through self-reportage. The problem with this of course, is that it can be hard to give a prospective employer a real sense of an applicant's capabilities and experience in this fashion. Maybe I'm just sick of tweaking my CV . . .
