  • Some changes are coming, but at this time points in MSDN/TechNet point system is separate from other systems.

  • I believe only activity in TechNet and MSDN forums is tracked in our profiles and can result in recognition points. However, Microsoft can see our activity in Stackoverflow, so this could change in the future. But I don't know how a Stackoverflow account can be associated with a TechNet/MSDN profile, or a Microsoft account (MSA).

    As for blogs, only the official Microsoft blogs are tracked. And only Microsoft employees can blog, although we occasionally see invited guests.

  • You can add the stakcoverflow flair in your signatures but if you are saying aggregating stackoverflow points to MSDN TechnNet that wouldn't be possible at the moment and i am not sure if that would happen in near future as both are separate communities.

    As an example. see my signatures.
