I will have to develop a stronger LinkedIn presence because I need to develop business connections in the Caribbean. But the profile is trying to make me list “pronouns” to “help people know how to refer to me.” This is simultaneously creepy and idiotic. I have my name listed right there! I’d hope people use it to refer to me. If that’s too hard, they can just say Professor.
By the way, did you, folks, know that N once published a book on how to use LinkedIn and it sold all over the world? It wasn’t a mega bestseller, or anything, but it was a really helpful book back in the very early days of LinkedIn.
He said some mildly controversial things in the book, so he assumed an identity of an Indian guy to publish it.
