I hate writing résumés. I hate the entire application process. There has got to be a better way.

I know there is LinkedIn, but I don't like their new ToS. I still have an account, but will delete it soon, probably.

I also don't want to actively hunt for other work. I already have a job. The work isn't bad. I would prefer to be able to use more free/libre tools. I like the people on my team, and many others in the company. I don't particularly like senior management at the moment, but that will probably change at some point. Hunting for work is a drag; I have better things to do.

I also don't want to stay ignorant of what the market looks like. I found the job I have now the usual way with résumés, recruiters, and LinkedIn. I found the job before that the same way, and the job before that (maybe that one was before LinkedIn), and before that, etc. Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing something over and over again expecting different results. Perhaps I'll try something different.

Maybe I'll try to build my personal brand. I can become known as an expert in things I'm interested, rather than things my employer is interested. Typically they are coincident. I shall build a thing called a résumé into this wiki and see what happens. The trick will be to structure the data in such a way that the same source can be used to feed the wiki and an actual résumé that recruiters will want.
