This is a great excerpt from the referenced article: Fired on Facebook: 

The importance of a personal brand is seldom well explained to juniors, and aspiring middle level careerists. It is nonetheless real. I certainly wish that I had done more of this in my mid 20s. I have had to involve HR on social networking related work posts with significant outcomes on more than a single occassion. 

FYI, my firm blocks are SNW execpt for DT.

Don't know if you are on my FB or not, but it is pretty neutral. I don't discuss much of anything on there that isn't commonly known about myself. LJ is a bit more personal, but I still don't discuss work that heavily here, for all the obvious reasons. The more senior you are within an organization, the more heavily you have to separate your personal and professional lives. Of course, now that I'm a workin' class schlub, maybe it shouldn't matter to me, but it still does. ;)

I am in DC Thursday night super late, mtgs the next workday and Friday night is looking like party at Casa Dixie (or a movie, or the Marcaroni Grill or maybe used bookstore fest)!

Wow. Talk about putting you in a bad position if your plans were more specific. Sorry, my gaffe. If this particular time isn't a good one, I will *not* take offense if you say so. Ack.
