How LinkedIn Found My 'Future' Self. Fellow lawyer and technologist, Jeffrey Taylor, found this article about using LinkedIn to follow the career paths of similar professionals; in this case, a journalist. I am using LinkedIn to post my blog musings, and to connect with fellow lawyers and some clients and prospective clients. In that sense, it is a bit like posting your resume on the Post Office wall; except that you probably won't get arrested. However, all data collected in such large sums can be used for purposes that probably weren't envisioned by the collectors. The problem is that, in this sense, I am at the tail end of a bell curve that begins with millennials, and ends with death. So, children, it may be that I am Future You. I hope you like what you find.
