Found an open access PDF version.

    I think it would change the hiring process and supplant the need for the self-reported resume or CV.

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 . . .
