On StackExchange, some people use their real names, while others hide behind a username.
I was wondering, do hiring committees look at a candidate's StackExchange account and consider the candidate's activity on these accounts?
I know committees look at my website, they openly mention this during interviews. They also ask me about things that they would only know about after seeing my website. I have yet to connect my real identity with my StackExchange account, because of my reservations about this.
