Are visual resumes the new LinkedIn?
There’s a reason LinkedIn is as successful as it is with more than 150 million accounts and two new ones created every second. It serves the need to separate our personal lives with our professional ones. While LinkedIn has been largely unchallenged as the more serious and subdued ‘professional network’ (as opposed to seemingly more frivolous offerings of Facebook or Twitter), there’s now ResumUP – a site that turns your online profile into a visual resume.

This is not a conspiracy theory
A year ago, New York based filmmaker Kirby Ferguson uploaded the first part of his 4-part web series, Everything is a Remix detailing the story of how everything from music to technology is built upon everything else that had come before it. Led Zeppelin were called rip-offs when they first started playing together and Bob Dylan’s first album included only cover songs. The last part of the series was uploaded only 2 weeks ago and outlines how our current legal system doesn’t accommodate this process of creativity, pertinent considering the recent SOPA and PIPA controversy sweeping the internet.
