Microsoft and LinkedIn

Twit podcast on the motivations of Microsoft acquiring Linkedin.  Useful thought piece.  Mention of Office Graph.  Privacy implications.   Continuing to follow.  Emphasis on a social channel with much less noise.   Value of real networking connections.    Also they get skill delivery group Lynda.com with the purchase.

(Update)  The three journalists that did this podcast provided good insight.  Implications with connections to Skype.   But I note that of the three, none of them were active users of LinkedIn.   Also mention of  Internal company functionality we had looked at.    Will this encourage those efforts?
