Promiscuous online culture and the vetting process - O'Reilly Radar -

One hint at what the vetting of candidates in a connected world might look like is the Obama campaign's questionnaire required of all political appointees. In addition to more traditional background questions, it asks for:
All blog posts, comments, and speeches you've made.
All emails, text messages, and instant messages that could suggest a conflict of interest or public source of embarrassment.
The URLs of any sites that feature you in a personal or professional capacity.
All of the aliases you've used online.
