Nice One, LinkedIn!

Posted by & filed under , , , , .

Just logging into LinkedIn today I saw they announced their Q1 2012 revenue — now the numbers themselves are impressive, but what caught my attention was the brilliant starting slide of their presentation: the very people who made LinkedIn get to this stage: Absolutely brilliant!

Posted by & filed under , , , .

I know that by posting this I am in fact providing free advertising to this site, which I saw advertised recently on the net, but had to share this screenshot as I thought it’s hilarious!
