    On January 29, 1995, the San Francisco 49ers walked out of the locker room at Joe Robbie Stadium in Miami, Florida to face the San Diego Chargers in Super Bowl XXIX. It didn’t take long for the 49ers, led by Steve Young, to stake their claim as the better team by scoring two touchdowns within five minutes and going on to win with a final score of 49-26. While the Super Bowl was the sporting event of the year and a continuation of 49er dominance in the NFL, for Steve, it was the culmination of a personal journey that included learning to throw blind, holding himself and the team accountable,…

    Boo, hiss. Apparently we can now see last names on 3rd degree search results… which is a great move… and long overdue.  But this new commercial use limit on search? They say: ” If you reach the commercial use limit, your activity on LinkedIn indicates that you’re likely using LinkedIn for commercial use, like hiring or prospecting.” Um, or you are a job seeker who is out of money and working your butt off to find networking contacts. The only good thing about this is that it forces you to (a) do better searches, and (b) do something with the search…
