Maybe it’s just me, but I’ve noticed lately an increase in people representing themselves as Individuals in communities where they are clearly acting on behalf of an Organization.
In some cases, I understand the motivation – banks, in particular, are extremely cautious about tipping their hands to the public about their IT choices not only for security, but for legal reasons. I’ve also run into a front or two for a group of people working in national security departments throughout Europe.
But if you work for an IT company, or a large company that is predominantly IT driven, why would you go so far out of your way to hide that fact? Doesn’t it limit your credibility?
