Sometimes LinkedIn job hunting can seem a little ... circuitous.

Too often, people mistake online activity as productive action. The job search is still about personal contact; the odds of your application being accepted if you have a personal referral are 10:1. Without the referral, they are 72:1. Bottom line: you need to put yourself out there so that people can get to know you.

I'm amazed by my ability to forget Google+ exists, particularly given up the +1 buttons are everywhere on the web.

Love seeing cool uses cases for Internet of Things like this. It's like FitBit for your furnace.

I actually backed this project. I like these guys' level of insanity. They raised more than £300,000.

Story
Introduction
Michael Morisy, a 2007 graduate of Cornell University, currently works as community editor for ITKnowledgeExchange.com, where he covers and blogs about a variety of IT and tech fields.

As an undergraduate, Michael was managing editor of the Cornell Daily Sun, where his investigative series about the departure of  President Jeffrey S. Lehman won the New York Press Association's (NYPE) collegiate news story of the year.

The Sun's website, which he lead the redesign and production of, was awarded 2nd place by the NYPE.

His work has also been featured in Cornell Alumni Magazine, in Business 2.0, and on NYTimes.com.

In the summer of 2006, he interned with the New York Daily News editorial board, where one of his front page editorials was part of a 10-part series that won the Pulitzer Prize.

His current home on the web is Morisy.com.
