Do you think that the LinkedIn's new "Endorsements" will eventually erode the "Recommendations" feature?

For sure. Recommendations are a pain to solicit and write. Endorsements are quick and painless and are more quantitative than qualitative. They're easier to search for and will create lists of people who have the most endorsements. It's actually kind of sad that people will now look for numbers rather than substance.

Story
Introduction

As a consultant in Algonquin College's Cooperative Education office, David focuses the majority of his time on business development and relationship building with internal and external stakeholders. Working closely with a number of industries (high tech, construction, hospitality, business, design, etc.) he consults with employers on a regular basis to assess staffing needs and develop new opportunities for co-op students, applied research, and college partnerships.

Prior to working in the Cooperative Education office, David was the Communications Officer for Algonquin College. His responsibilities as primary communicator for the college included the planning, management, and execution of internal and external communications, media relations, stakeholder relations, community engagement, government relations, event management, various college websites, and the college’s social media presence. In this role, David drafted and implemented Algonquin’s first college-wide social media strategy (updated annually). As a result, Algonquin College was ranked as the most influential Canadian College by Klout.com two years running (2010 – 2011).

Since 2008, David has been a part-time professor in Algonquin College’s School of Media and Design while teaching in the Public Relations program, his focus was primarily on Media Relations. The Radio Broadcasting program hired David in 2010 to teach a course to their final-year students focused exclusively on social media. These course included discussions on personal social media use, reputation management, personal branding, social media use in a business environment, and social media in the Ottawa and national news industry.

In his spare time, David is an active social media blogger (www.davidhallsocialmedia.com) and is a weekly contributor (and occasional guest co-host) on Talknowledgy, an Ottawa-based radio show and podcast aired on 580 CFRA that focuses on the latest trends in social media and technology.

David’s volunteer work includes working on various political campaigns. He was an Algonquin College United Way Team leader for the 2009 campaign (which raised over $100,000 at the college) and he served on the City of Ottawa: Roads and Cycling Advisory Committee from 2008-2010.

David has a passion for education, social media, and sustainability. He enjoys cycling, golf, creating in the kitchen, comedy, and rooting for the Toronto Blue Jays and those dreaded Maple Leafs.

If you have small body/paint repair jobs, get them done here. Staff was friendly and helpful. The guy I met when I first stopped by for an estimate gave me an accurate picture of the price. I had to return to see the PDR specialist, and he was good at explaining what PDR technique he would use. My job took a couple of days, but they called me and gave me updates along the way. Excellent quality of work: Most importantly, the PDR guy (Steve) seemed to really want to get it right. It was clear that he put serious effort into getting everything just right before calling the job "done". Absolute perfection is not possible, but the job he did was pretty darn close. No complaints whatsoever on the price. It was completely fair and worth every penny. I would use these guys again.
