When web sites first started coming around the most popular page that was found were "about me" and a page of"favorite links". (Yes I have had both. Look at this page circa 1999.)
The biggest problem, which still exist today, updating a static web page f information becomes quickly outdated as new events happen in one's life, career, etc. Even somen that is constantly logged in a CMS and/or CRM, your audience will eventually think you have not been up anything .. lets say since September 2004.
So instead of a traditional "about me" section, let add some snippets of information and links to the various places on the web where I am day to day.
