I am an ocassional user of scribd.com, which I think is a very nifty place for uploading large documents and sharing them. About a year ago, I did a presentation on blogs and wikis for the staff of Carrier Library here at JMU. I uploaded the presentation file to scribd rather than bringing it on a jump drive or some such thing. Having almost forgotten that I had done that, I went to scribd for something else eysterday to discover that my humble presentation had been favorited by someone named Erik Jonker. Turns out Mr. Jonker is a "Policy advisor, Information Infrastructure, Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations (BZK) in the Netherlands."
Wow! Does this mean that I am influencing the Netherlands' policy on information infrastructure? Probably not, but it is still pretty cool, I think.
