This is a very high-level suggestion, not at all a concrete request. I just thought about this recently when looking for interesting answers by Brian Goetz. It would be extremely interesting for some users to be able to turn their public profile view into a sort of blog that other people can navigate.
A couple of features of this blog:
- The profile owner can curate contents themselves (as opposed to the current "statistics" - driven approach)
- "Posts" (i.e. question links) by different interesting profiles can be followed
I know there is this question here and it had been closed in 2009:
But check out the number of upvotes on that question! And today is 2015, I'm very sure that Stack Exchange's visions have changed in the mean time. Making SO a bit more of a social network for experts (e.g. in combination with http://careers.stackoverflow.com). Quora.com works this way, for instance. This would benefit:
- Those people who actively curate their profiles. They will get more attention, which will motivate them even more to give great answers.
- Stack Exchange, as even more people would link to content on Stack Exchange, because the content is both interesting and written by an authority.
You can still disagree, if you like, but I'd like to reopen the discussion that was closed in 2009.
