Internet Personas

I always have trouble describing to people what I do for a living.  I usually just say software developer.  If someone wants to know more though, how do you make it an elevator speech?  Does someone know what data warehouse or business intelligence means?  It seems that my niche at the office has become creating tools for this, mostly in Silverlight lately but it’s always evolving.

I like finding examples that people can relate to.

MIT has an interesting example of mining the internet to create a portrait of your identity.  After all the internet is like another vast database.  Unstructured but still. 

Try it out for yourself.
