Lotus Learned…

Don’t copy content blatantly and post a pissy link to the original source from hundreds of IT blogs, then cite bullshit reasons for doing it, then embed boatloads of advertising in the content you stole and expect people not to complain.  This is a small community Ms Smith.  Many of the community bump into each other professionally very frequently.   Do you think this little episode has done your reputation harm, or good.

    @Andy: You might be right, if you doa google image search you find a larger version of the LinkedIn profile picture here: https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-DU_etEBLQWI/AAAAAAAAAAI/AAAAAAAAAJA/J1aq405bHos/s200-c-k/photo.jpg
    There you can see that the lanyard around her neck says “Deloitte”, a company not listed on the LinkedIn profile. However, she is listed as consultant, including at BinaryTree. Perhaps we can have someone we know there verify if that really is an ex-employee and if the photo is correct.

    In my opinion, the profile sounds very bolsterous, she claims to be an expert with products from Oracle, Lotus, Microsoft and Peoplesoft… Just tto mention some things. Sounds like she knows a little about many things, but is not an expert in anything (and definately NOT in copyright law!)
