Join us this BBC Friday for a discussion of what this BIG tech/business-networking corporate acquisition event means — for LinkedIn users, for Google users, for recreational drug users.
Special guest Rob Salkowitz, Contributing writer at Forbes, plans to join us on Skype to introduce the topic and field your questions (linkedin.com/in/robsalkowitz). Forbes article: http://www.forbes.com/sites/robsalkowitz/2016/06/13/why-did-microsoft-buy-linkedin-ask-cortana/#68d656073546.
Thanks to BBC Regular Leslie Schneider, OfficeXpats Chief Of Operations and Owner-manager, for ferreting out and engineering this brilliant topic! linkedin.com/in/leslieschneider
