I think that it is time for me to publish the last post on this blog using WordPress as a domain. As you probably already know, GitHub is my favorite company and I have decided to switch my blog to a completely new domain.
I have published a couple of posts exclusively on the new domain and backed up every post from this domain to my new address (with one exception, but I’m working on it). I feel confident now to make the switch and I started to feel really comfortable using GitHub + Jekyll as a blogging platform, so I’ve decided to drop by and say good bye to my old domain.
From now on, you can follow me on r3bl.github.io. Be sure to use the http version of the site because https version is currently not properly implemented in the code. If you run into some issue while browsing the site or you miss a feature that I had implemented on this domain, feel free to report it here.
As always, you’re more than welcome to contact me anytime on firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope that you’ll continue to read me on my new address.
I know that this post is going to be pretty basic, but it was not very detailed in my head so I wanted to write about it to remember it easier.
So, what tools and techniques can someone use to gather information about a certain person or company?
Well, your best friend is Google + Evernote combination. Basically, what you can do is to write down all of the data you think it will be usable in Evernote. Next, look up that company using social sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. now, why is that important? Well, it is important because maybe their employees listed that company as their job on their social sites. From there, you can find out a lot about who is working there. Write it down in Evernote and proceed.
Next stop is finding out what their workers do the best. So you’ll use maybe a little social engineering to get to information their employees are posting on their social media. By looking at their resumes, their likes and their tweets, you can find out a lot about a certain person. After you do that, you just match them up to see where do their interests combine.
For an example, if a couple of their employees listed Java as their field of expertize on their LinkedIn profile, there’s a big chance that their site or applications they provide will include some parts of Java code. Your job is to find more that clues and to paint as precise picture of a company as possible.
Does not seem that hard, does it?
