Updates, Jobs, Requesting Your Feedback, And More For 3/2/2011

Hey folks!  Well, March is here, which means it’s time to double your trouble and double your fun with two events.  We’ve also got jobs to talk about, some new entries for you to read, and we’re looking for some feedback as we figure out what we’re going to do as we think through revamping and expanding our site.

So let’s start with the events.  We’ve got a casual networking event next Thursday at the BlackFinn in Royal Oak.  The next is a trip downtown as we hit the Hockeytown Cafe on Wednesday, March 23rd for another casual event and the Red Wings vs Vancouver Canucks game.

For details on those events, you can check out…

Thursday, March 10th at the BlackFinn – on our site or on LinkedIn

Wednesday, March 23rd at Hockeytown Cafe – on our site or on LinkedIn

As always, our events are completely free to attend, and will get started at 5pm.  Look forward to seeing you at one, or even better – both! – of these events this month.

On the reading front, it turns out that you can learn a lot about social networking from games that run on social network platforms.  Go figure, huh?  Check out Game Theory and Networking 101 out at  We’ve also got our latest Don’t Be That Guy live – The Bad Recruiter out at

And now we come to needing your feedback and input.  Take a moment and click through to and take a moment to give us your thoughts on what we ought to be thinking of as we revamp our site and think about adding some new features.

Which brings us to the reason why we’re asking these questions…LinkedIn’s “Jobs” function is, yes, still broken.  Way to go, LinkedIn!  As a result, keep an eye on our previous updates out at in order to make sure you’re not missing anything.  As far as what’s live currently, here’s a sampling:
