    I used linkedin a **** ton for learning about industries, connecting with people to network and get advice, or do business with so I am officially a whore, but it's useful. I hate it in many ways because it's so poorly built and the UI gives me aids with all the things that don't work properly, or consistently.

    Random one; who's your most interesting connection? I have a massive mix of the most random people.

    Some interesting connections on there!

    I'm moving back to the UK in a couple of weeks, actually joining the ranks of Microsoft @blairw, going to one of the Xbox Studios.
