This sounds like a dangerous project. You can bet that each and every potential employer is going to be looking to see if we have a blog or a myspace or whatever. I know that I couldn't write an honest and open (and thus interesting) blog if I knew that my future employer was going to read it.
I also bet that when we finally make it to court that our opposing counsel will have done a google search on us too.
Heck, in 2000 I hired an employment lawyer to review a contract I was being asked to sign and he did a search on my company's attorney and basically told me all about the school he went to, his clients and everything. And that was back in 2000. Before blogs and myspace.
In a field that is so heavily dependent on reputation, I'd be very hesitant to offer up any additional information about myself.
That said, you can guarantee that I'll be reading some of these blogs. Smart people make good blogs.
