I would like to to know if Stack Overflow reputation has value outside of Stack Overflow and the Stack Exchange network?
I have read How does "Reputation" work ?, and can see why reputation is useful on Stack Overflow. Is this reputation useful on other sites and for other uses?
For example when interviewing for work:
At one Interview ================ interviewer : What is your skill on programming ? me : Here is a link sir! You can check my reputation on Stack Overflow. interviewer : Oh! nice , that is a good recomendation for us.
It looks think some peoples are farming reputation, and I wonder why?
Edit: get a mail from Stack Overflow Careers 2.0
Yes , it's a good opportunity for us . Now our reputations , some good questions , some good answers were become very useful for us. How about you ?
