http://bryce.vc/post/11341018713/the-pig-passing-through-the-python

Bryce Roberts reports on two related and converging trends: the slow-down of investment into non-premier early-stage VC companies, and the number of early-stage companies shopping themselves around to prominent start-ups.

LinkedIn Lets Companies Share Their Own Status Updates - Jon Mitchell

LinkedIn has launched status updates from companies. Administrators of company pages can post short updates just like individual users can. This provides companies with a way to engage followers and start conversations from within the public LinkedIn stream.

Users of LinkedIn could follow company profiles since 2010. Previously, users following a company would see personnel changes, new job openings and company profile updates. Now companies can also share 500-character messages, links and media with followers as well.

I wonder if this portends a step closer toward real federation of work on LinkedIn? Will LinkedIn move toward  a work media implementation?
