Though I don't think I'm well suited for elected office, I'd say it's more likely than not that I'll work in government at some point in my life as some kind of technocrat. There's also an outside chance that I'll need a security clearance for a job or two.
Now I haven't written anything on here that I would completely disavow--a few things have been logically screwy or factually wrong--but I have written things that could be broadly construed as inflamatory. ("Daddy Brooklyn hates Republicans" is a nice example.)
This might cause me some trouble later in life given that there are many projects underway to archive
the Internet. While this may be useful for historians, I'm a little worried that in 20 years a bunch of bloggers are going to be shut out of important positions in government by impertinent political muckrakers who have access to Internet archives and thus access to a lot of writings that may be defensible, but aren't exactly politically palatable.
Is anyone else a little bit worried? I'm pretty sure the CIA will comb through your blog postings before hiring you.
