I had a look on the people you may know on linked in today and 10 entries down was Miles Jacobsen. For those not in the know he's the studio direct of sports interactive. The company behind Football Manager.
He's 3 steps away from connecting to me. Basically a few people I know, know people that Miles knows. I'm not massively shocked that I know someone that knows someone who knows one of the greatest men alive. I am a little concerned however that he should be quite do high up the list.
I have no mention of football manager on my linked in (professional networking site) page so why would it be quite so high up on my list. He’s a third connection, there are plenty of second connections that surely the site might think I have a better chance of knowing before they start suggesting him. Why not suggest Barack Obama? Or Steven Gerrard? Or Kermit the Frog?
