Today's LinkedIn Nugget

1999

It was a good year, and the next milestone was about to drop.

We buried time capsules. If you were working then we were in the midst of Y2K preparations, spending tons of money on new system upgrades and consultants to protect us from a computer disaster. Or so we thought. Obviously the world did not end.

On the eve of the new century I went to work on New Year’s Eve and watched in rapt anticipation at midnight that something or nothing would happen. At the company I worked, all went on, as if the turn of the century were just a grain of sand further in time.

This blogpost is number 1999 (yes folks, WordPress counts them).

So on the eve of my 2000th blog post, a click further in my time invested writing here, I reiterate my commitment to focus you on LinkedIn through the best lens I can offer. Nothing less. Every business morning at 800 am NY time.

I promise.

Tomorrow we turn the next page to my 2000th blog post!
