In addition to updating my LinkedIn profile, I’ve also been updating my Stack Overflow developer story.

As nice as its format is, I wonder if maintaining it is worth the effort. Does anybody else keep their Stack Overflow developer story up to date? Do people who are hiring look at them in the same way they look at LinkedIn profiles?
