I'm only selling a very small piece of my soul.  The whole thing is impossible to sell to FB/G+/Soundcloud/linkedin.  Each one allows me to reveal a small portion of myself to others. For the full picture one needs to be my friend, in the realest sense of the term.

Love this guy.

That quote applies far more widely.  The same is true of programmers, problem solvers, planners, and artists of any stripe...I'm sure the list goes on and on.  Writers exploit them on the page...whether in print or through the tubes of the 'net.  Others exploit the ideas in a different fashion or through a different medium.
