From my Blackberry device
I can search all employees
          at IBM
I do a search on “rest”
development to find an
   expert in that area
12 people are returned
from the search results
Luis is at the top of the list
and I look at his corporate
            profile
I can access his contact
    details and initiate
communication from here
Instead I look at the tags
that have been generated
 by users to describe Luis
I also look at his “About
   Me” to see how he
    describes himself.
I decide to connect with
Luis via instant messaging
We chat and he will assist
us with our REST questions
      in the evening
