LinkedIn as custodian of professional identity?

In a recent comment on this blog, the idea that LinkedIn could (should?) become a sort of central repository of professional identity, especially if job sites were to embrace LinkedIn as their solution in lieu of their résumé builders. Interesting idea isn't it? David hits it on the nail... again. He also provides a  link to a good post in O'Reilly Radar.

  1. In that matter, if LinkedIn could join OpenID, that would be a great move.
    Beyond this difficult matter of establishing an identity on the webernet, LinkedIn has reached a point when it starts to re-invent the wheel (Q&A for example), while it should better invest in creating connectivity with other networks in sites.
    Nobody stays behind closed doors for ever: if they don't act accordingly, somebody will do it...
