The algorithms on sites like Amazon that are used to suggest what products you might be interested in purchasing based on your current or past searches are pretty darn good. But I think those folks over at LinkedIn need to invest in some programmers with a bit more talent. The site must be trying to get by with some also-rans. You know how they suggest (unsolicited) new contacts based on your profession, interests, college, etc.? Well, the LinkedIn algorithm must have been off on a coffee break today because here’s one match it suggested for me:
A “Senior Dimensional Shift Facilitator” from an organization called “Quantum Paradigm,” an “industrial think tank” from somewhere in the Milky Way. His interests are in “applied spiritual philosophy and synchronicity” and asking questions like, “How did we get here and where are we going? What's important? What's behind the curtain?”
Oh yeah, this is my soul brother alright. Yep. I don’t think I’ll invest any money in LinkedIn just yet. They appear to have just a few bugs to work out in their system.
