All LinkedIn with Nowhere to Go

On LinkedIn and the uselessness of thought leadership.

This frenetic networking-by-vague-association has bred a mordant skepticism among some users of the site. Scott Monty, head of social media for the Ford Motor Company, includes a disclaimer in the first line of his LinkedIn bio that, in any other context, would be a hilarious redundancy: “Note: I make connections only with people whom I have met.” It’s an Escher staircase masquerading as a career ladder.

Thus, If we all buy into the delusion that we all have nice butts, like some multilevel marketing scheme, maybe we’ll meet the right person and something good will magically happen…somehow over all the noise they heard there were nice butts to be found.
