Ryan Hoover writes that ‘blogging is the next resume’. The problem with this hypothesis is wrong. Blogging is just as gamable as the github reputation, dead tree resume and linkedin endorsements. Blogging more so as I have acquaintances that pay people to write for them. Of course this is no different than artist mills but that’s a different level of engineering socialization.
