The latest news from the brave new world of the Data Economy:
LinkedIn's map of the world
Right now, you can endorse your professional buddies on LinkedIn, learn about some relevant job opportunities, and wonder how in the heck this person you don't know who runs a company you never heard of decided to ask you to add him to your professional network.
In the grand vision of the LinkedIn gurus, though, the future will offer a world map based on LinkedIn data showing every single economic opportunity on earth.
The map would include a profile of every company, every higher educational organization, every worker and every job opportunity on the planet.
