This Was Kinda Unexpected

Microsoft, the company that everyone loves to hate at times is buying LinkedIn the professional network site. This is a sweetheart deal for both companies. LinkedIn has struggled to remain relevant in recent months. Despite its acquisition of SlideShare and a number of changes on the site spam continued to be an issue, the communication interface failed to ignite the building of real relationships in its membership base and its true value proposition remained uncertain even though in the professional networking space there are few competitors of its size and caliber.

Microsoft has continued to look for ways to deepen its credentials with enterprise, increase its presence in social and find ways to get clear, social-linked data it can use across its products and services.

The merger is likely to make both companies stronger with LinkedIn getting access to cash and MS engineering know-how and Microsoft getting a leg up in social with an established, well-respected site.

This doesn't mean things could not go wrong. Merging different cultures and making them work without seriously disrupting one or the other requires a clear vision, an iron will and loads and loads of patience. Microsoft may not possess all of these attributes.

I mean ... Nokia anyone?

New Zealander Sir Edmund Hillary and Nepalese Sherpa Tenzing Norgay became the first mountaineers to reach the summit of Mount Everest #OTD 1953. (This is them, still friends, 30 years later.)
