Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

LinkedIn's New Homepage

Dion has a post about LinkedIn's New Homepage. In addition to Dion's post, this seems to be a popular topic on Techmeme. I'm proud to say I played a small part in this project and enjoyed working with the fabulous "Homepage Team" that put this together. We celebrated the launch last week while I was out in Mountain View.

To learn more about LinkedIn's New Homepage and the News feature, see the LinkedIn Blog.

Back to Dion's post. He says:

The network connections portion shows me what is wrong with LinkedIn. On Facebook I can see interesting things that my friends have done. On LinkedIn, I see that a connection has added another 6 connections. Who cares?

I agree that Network Updates are kinda boring on LinkedIn. However, I don't find my Facebook News Feed very interesting either. Is your Facebook News Feed interesting? If so, why?
