Microsoft and LinkedIn
Apparently, Microsoft employees are no longer allowed to be a part of the LinkedIn network, as of about 2 weeks ago. Concerns about “information leakage”. Hmm… one wonders what sort of information. Microsoft has always been fiercely protective of it’s staff, so I am imagining that this is an attempt to curtail opportunities to hire key people away. It’s too bad, though. Becoming more accessible to the outside world would help their image a lot.
