Surfing, listening and observing.  It seems like people
are experiencing more uncertainty in their positions
and those who are successful in their projects are not
being rewarded as in the past.

Anxiety and preparing for worst case scenarios, if
not this week, then perhaps in a couple of months,
is encouraging many to adapet to continuous
networking.  It is not just the urgent tactic of
our unemployed colleagues.  How do you do it
when fewer people can attend ACS meetings?
One way is doing more on line.

The time commitment is considerable to work
on our networks online.  Laura Holson’s article
offers some tips.  (Please pass on yours!)

- create an electronic file (.pdf) and attach it to
and email you send to yourself to be ready
quickly

- create a tailored message containing a
research summary or project list or
management philosophy on a personal
Google site (Sites.Google.com), personal
web-page or blog,  Add a link to your
signature line might do the trick for
convenient linking.

- do be careful about posting information without
permission if it relates to limited access information
or there is a confidential agreement of any kind.

- be aware of other references to our names
which might show up in a search.  Google yourself.
