On April 26th, after 28+ years with Honeywell I retired. Two months later I'm still doing research on web based tools, and the use of social media. I've even started my own Flipboard App magazine which focuses upon my home region on the Northshore of Lake Superior.
However, now that I'm not working for a large Fortune 100 company, apparently my value in terms of social search on LinkedIn has dropped 50%. This fact doesn't matter either way, just an interesting observation. Here is the trend on how often my profile has been reviewed during this transition period. Like any social interaction (or web visits), it is not the number of the visits, but the quality thereof. (my updated LinkedIn profile)
Thus ... my retirement is now quantified in terms of LinkedIn! :-)
