LinkedIn refreshes?

Hey hey, anyone else notice that LinkedIn is sporting some fancy new Web 2.0 gradients and open white space? Just in time for OpenBC’s OpenDesign contest conclusion!

Too bad they didn’t get on the microformats tip. Kinda seems like a waste of effort without them, don’t it?

  1. Maybe their not even looking. How many have their heads in the sand? Made me go back and look though, it has been a while.

  2. Chris, I’m working on hResume for our profile pages, but I didn’t finish in time for this release (though I did start with basic hCard support on the Connections page). And while I don’t think the redesign was a “waste of effort” without microformats, I do agree it’ll be even more awesome once they’re in place. 🙂

  3. Hey Chris, that’s excellent!! I’m sorry I was harsh on the redesign, but I’d not heard anything at all about your efforts and didn’t even know that this was going on.

    I’m thrilled to hear about your support for hResume and hCard — will you support importing as well?
