Integrated Searches

In ramblings, social commentary on December 26, 2013 at 12:06 am

So… I clicked a link to read about Ingrid Lederhaas-Okun, the Tiffany exec that was recently sentenced for stealing millions of dollars worth of jewelry. The first note worthy thing about this is that she got a year in prison. One year for millions in theft. How much do you get breaking open an ATM? I’m guessing the punishments would not be linear in there relationship to the amount stolen.

The most important thing about this has nothing to do with her sentence though. Clicking the link brought up a Bing search page with a number of articles on the sentencing. To the right it brought up her LinkIn profile and resume. 🙂

I’m guessing her knowledge of the stolen Global Luxury Goods Market is also extensive. And she should probably start floating that resume so she can find a new job when she gets out. What I really find interesting and what this search proves is how everything is so interconnected and there is so much info about you on-line that you never know what embarrassing item will pop up when somebody does a search for you. I guess this is probably a little bit counter-intuitive coming from somebody who blogs about the nuances of his life but you really should be careful about what you put on-line. Once it’s there, it’s there forever and clicking “private” doesn’t mean anything. Once posted, it is public. Be careful.
