The word naive seems appropriate (Scoble related)

Scoble thinks everyone should just post all their contact information on their website. Hmm, anyone see a problem with this?
In the original version of this post, I thought I’d help Scoble out by posting the same info he had on his site: email, cellphone, work street address, birthday, wifes name, marriage date, friends name, son’s name and birthdate.
Sounds like a good start for some social engineering. His reasoning for posting this information is that the more people who know who the real Scoble is the less likely it is that his identity can be successfully stolen. I think that reasoning is crap. How many times has someone pretended to be a professional athlete and successfully written bad checks. I bet you that I could show up at TechEd and get people to believe that I’m Scoble.
