Next week, as a part of the launch of the HRExaminer, we're going to release a ranked list of the Top 25 Online Influencers in HR. This list is completely generated by algorithm (think Google). The list ranks the Top 25 voices in HR based on their online footprint.
In the larger Top 100 project, we've been looking at the question of whether and how someone is influential…Continue
So, I was at this party a couple of weeks ago. All sorts of twitterati were there. There was even a small shrine for our forbears, Paul DeBettignies and Jim Durbin. The place was throbbing and crowded . If you yelled loud enough, you could hear yourself over the music. Lots of people lined up to yell at each other while pretending to listen.
You know the scene.
Anyhow, I walked over to the bar to get a drink. Along the way, I struck up a conversation with a…Continue
I have fun at my job. Recently, I've been writing about some things that I think are particularly interesting. The sustained downturn is causing innovation in recruiting to explode. I've been looking closely at trends and examples.

Digging Into RecruitingBlogs.com v2.03 Who's the Techie
(Jan 23, 2009) It's a downturn. Skinnying back means letting go of the niceties of outsourced web work. This week, I've been learning how to do my own IT. I used to do it; made enough money not to and have started again.
It's easier to be your own tech guy today than it was 15 years ago. HTML nearly writes itself. All you have to do is figure out the nuances of a couple of pieces of software,
I'm using Google Apps,…Continue
Have you been following the defriending trend? The notable tip of the iceberg is the Burger King campaign offering a Whopper in exchange for deleting friends on Facebook.
In an industry known for indiscriminate and promiscuous linking (Recruiting),…Continue
