While I like the idea of introductions, blogs are very time-sensitive
and if someone wants to search for another person, I think having the
profile on a blog is not going to be easy to find. It might be better
to point to another place containing the profile - of course this
could be any of the places already mentioned.
I like Ged's idea of making it about passions rather than about
career, and I think it could be helpful for us to get a feel for the
interests in the community and help to organise events appropriately.
